The Brits dominated the Para-Cycling International on home roads, picking up a number of wins on the first day of festivities in Yorkshire ahead of the Road World Championships.

Steve Bate and Adam Duggleby were the first winners of the day, claiming victory in the B-class tandem event, before William Bjergfelt soared across the line, arms aloft, having won the men's C5-class race. Meanwhile, Dame Sarah Storey won the C5 class for the women.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
