Scott Davies made history on Thursday, becoming the first rider in history to claim three under-23 men's British time trial titles.

Davies (Team Wiggins) of Carmarthen was last rider off in Stockton-on-Tees clocked an impressive time of 44-10.430 to add to his 2014 and 2015 titles.

Tao Geoghagen Hart (Axeon Hagens) took second place having set a time of 44-29.81, with Gabriel Cullaigh (100% ME) completing the podium positions in third place with 44-40.24.

Worryingly for his rivals, Davies is still only 20 and therefore could add to his tally of under-23 wins next year.

The 35.8-kilometre (22.2-mile) course was relatively flat, but with a testing section of corners in Stockton.

All three national time trial titles are being run on Thursday (June 23), with the elite women's event following the under-23 men. The elite men's race finishes the day.

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.
