ProTour riders can't stop the House party

Kristian House (Rapha Condor) took his first British title in the elite men's road race in Abergavenny on Sunday when he out sprinted Daniel Lloyd (Cervelo Test Team), Peter Kennaugh (100% ME) and Chris Froome (Barloworld) to take the gold medal.


House was delighted with his victory - especially as it was against a high class field. "You have just got to race your own race," said House. "It doesn't matter who else is there. If they want to ride up the road and smash the race to bits that's fine but you have to ride to your own plans. I was trying to ride for Chris (Newton) and Tom (Southam) today so it wasn't right for me to ride away with Brad (Wiggins) and Chris (Froome) especially as it was still a long way to the finish. I knew we still have ten laps of the finishing circuit to go so I just bided my time."
