Joey Walker emulated his father and took an emotion win at the 2019 British criterium championships.
After a high-paced start, Walker made a mid-race move to jump across to lone leader Isaac Mundy.
Walker’s move went unmarked by his rivals and initially the duo enjoyed a 10-second lead over the chasing pack.
Their lead grew to over 30-seconds with 20-minutes of racing remaining and although there were several concerted efforts to close the gap, Walker’s teammates played the perfect role, marshalling any attempts to bring back the leaders.
With five laps to go, Walker and Mundy were assured a duel for the national title, as it became clear that there would be no chance for the now diminished chase group to make the junction.
Walker followed Mundy into the final corner – with Mundy’s rear wheel breaking traction as the pair opened up the sprint with 100-metres to go.
Worse was to come for Mundy though, as in the final 50-metres he unclipped from his pedal and Walker took advantage to pass and take the title by a clear margin.
