Junior rider Nigel Ellsay wins in France – Prix du Plateau

A great email sent to Cycling BC from Junior rider Nigel Ellsay:


With good form that is building I managed to win my 5th race of the season – Prix du Plateau

I attacked out of the winning break with 4km to go then held on to win.  The last member of my team to win Prix du Plateau was kiwi George Bennett- now riding professionally at the USA Pro Challenge with RadioShack-Nissan.


This win would not have been possible without the help of so many people back home; Coaches, Family, Sponsors, CBC and CCC that have helped me develop.


Thanks guys and I am really looking to rip it up at the Worlds in ONLY a few weeks time now – Nigel Ellsay
