Dillon Byrne (Champion System) took the victory in the Sheffrec CC Spring Road Race at Braithwell near Maltby in South Yorkshire on Sunday.
Byrne took the victory after sprinting clear of a four-man escape group. Former winner Thomas Bustard (Giordana-Mitsubishi Electric) came in for second, with George Moore (Bicicielo) in third.
Earlier in the race, Graham Briggs (JLT-Condor) and Steve Lampier (Raleigh-GAC) had very been active in driving the pace of the race - with Lampier later putting himself into the final four-man selection, but just missing out on the podium positions in fourth.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
