ADAM Martin won a keenly-contested Ballantyne Memorial Trophy Road Race in rural Northumberland.

The Cestria Cycles RT rider completed the 53-mile course in and around Cambo in a time of two hours and 23 minutes.

He was also young enough to win the First Junior award and took the prize for being ahead at the Winters Gibbet prime.

John Cann of Infinity Cycles was runner-up, finishing four seconds behind Martin, and Michael Mallen (GS Metro) was ten seconds back in third.

Mallen won the awards for King of The Mountains, the outgoing and returning primes at Bilsmoor and the Dave Walton Memorial Sprint.

Calum McLean (Edinburgh RC) was the winner of the Maureen Bain Memorial Sprint.

The event was promoted by Barnesbury Cycling Club.
