Matt Holmes took third at the Lincoln GP after breaking clear on the final lap alongside teammate Johnny McEvoy and five others.
McEvoy made a late, daring attack to win alone but was caught in the closing stages as the riders raced up Michaelgate.
Holmes finished best taking the final podium placing, with McEvoy holding on for fourth.
How the race unfolded
150 riders took to the start of the Lincoln GP in sunny conditions, as the eight-man selection for Madison Genesis prepared to take on 165-kilometres of racing.
The distance would cover 13-laps of an undulating course, culminating each time in an ascent over the cobbles of Michaelgate, where the competition would eventually be decided.
Joe Evans joined a group of eight others attacking early in the race and quickly gained a gap that extended to nearly four minutes with seven laps completed.
But as the race entered it’s final third the peloton made its move, reducing the gap to under two minutes with five laps remaining – and less than 60-seconds with three to go.
As riders were tailed off of the lead group Evans stayed at the head of affairs, however the remaining quintet were joined by James Lowsley Williams (Bike Channel Canyon) as the bunch crossed the line for a penultimate time with a deficit of 22-seconds.
With 19-kilometres remaining the race was all back together with the scene set for a classic showdown.
On the penultimate climb of Michaelgate, a seven-man selection was made – including Johnny McEvoy and Matt Holmes.
With a lead of 28-seconds and the finish fast approaching, the duo made their numerical advantage count and McEvoy launched a solo attack forcing others to chase.
Ultimately Holmes would profit to take third, a single position ahead of McEvoy.
