It was double delight at the Lincoln GP as Johnny McEvoy sealed overall victory in the British Cycling Spring Cup Series and Madison Genesis did the double, claiming the team title.
McEvoy and the team went into the final round holding the series lead and would endure a day of fractious racing to secure the win.
Swift set the tone for a prominent display as he infiltrated the first move of the day with four others, but with a lack of team variation the peloton kept the move at just one minute.
As the race approached the halfway mark, the high pace broke the bunch and 30-riders became the primary chase group.
Swift maintained his lead at first, but gradually the gap came down, two lost contact from the break and George Pym briefly joined Swift – before the group came together.
With three laps to go, 19-riders were in the front group and they would contest the race – including Swift, Pym and McEvoy.
Amazingly, Swift and McEvoy were allowed to go clear with two laps to go, but that wouldn’t last and it was a move by Alex Richardson that would prove decisive.
Attacking with just over a lap remaining, his solo move took him all the way to the finish, while behind calculations were being made by McEvoy to take the title.
In the final cobbled climb up Michaelgate, Swift took sixth, Pym eighth and McEvoy 11th, in another strong team performance that would wrap up the individual and team standings.
