Ryan came first at the Vipvit/Lichfield CCC youth races on Sat 30th March. He tried to split the field in the early part of the race, but after a couple of attacks felt the field was going to stay together. So he elected to stay up near the front covering any possible attacks and waited for the sprint.
On the final lap the pace increased as riders started to push for the finish. Ryan slipped into third place waiting to hit them on the final descent before the rise to the line. Ryan timed his sprint to perfection and hit the front, fall gas, just as the road began to rise, leaving the other riders trailing in his wake for a well-earned victory.
