IT was disappointment for Essex cyclists at the British Cycling National Road Race Championships as all of them failed to complete the 117-mile course.

Alex Dowsett, Daniel Patten, Russell Hampton and George Wood lined up at the start in Monmouthshire, in Wales, but all failed to keep the pace, although Hampton showed signs of challenging the breakaway group before his chain came off.

Team Sky’s Peter Kennaugh won the race ahead of team-mate Ben Swift.
