Stewart wins Velothon Wales

Guldhammer, Bibby beaten by Madison Genesis rider

Britain's Tom Stewart (Madison Genesis) claimed victory in the Pro Race at the second Velothon Wales from a successful breakaway. He topped Stolting Service Groups' Rasmus Guldhammer, with NFTO's Ian Bibby in third.

Victory for the 26-year-old Stewart came a week after he won the Lincoln Grand Prix and an impressive showing in the Tour de Yorkshire.

"I am so chuffed. I have never gone as deep as this over the last four weeks in my life and today was another record again," Stewart said. "As a team we really deserved what we got in Lincoln last week and this is another great moment for us. It was a brilliant race, really hard and I decided to take it on."

Stewart said he put in a probing attack before finally getting a gap on the second trip up the Tumble.

"I can't sprint for toffee so I decided to go for it. I kept telling myself 'don't get home tonight and regret anything, just dig deeper and deeper'. What a relief it was to win."
