Ben Swift

Ben Swift continued Great Britain?s excellent results in under 23 races in Italy on Wednesday, finishing fourth in the prestigious GP della Liberazione race in the centre of Rome.

Italian Manuel Boaro (Zalf) won the race ahead of Mauro Finetto and Australia?s Simon Clarke after being part of a late attack. Swift just failed to catch them in the final three hundred metres as the race came back together but held-off the rest of the bunch with a well-timed and powerful sprint to take fourth.
