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.
