The start finish is about 5km from where Dunbar grew up, and I suspect the goes through his village. You'd have to suspect he was intended to win.Ireland: Eddie Dunbar is in a small lead group with three domestic amateur riders. The new TT and U23 TT champions, Ben Healy and Darren Rafferty are 20 seconds behind chasing as a group of 2.
Just as the front trio got caught, CUL attacked. She was quickly caught by Norsgaard, though.
Edit, not quite. Took bit longer.
And Towers is the new British Champion. Georgi second, Henderson third.
Rory Townsend as one of those "domestic amateur riders" still deserves a mention, though, I'd say. He'll be hard to beat for Dunbar, I guess, especially in pouring rain now. The other two in front are Cormac McGeoough (Wildlife Generation Pro Cycling) and Dean Harvey (Spellman-Dublin Port), who I'd say is the only real amateur up thereThe start finish is about 5km from where Dunbar grew up, and I suspect the goes through his village.
