Harry Tanfield notched third place in the GP Lucien van Impe Erpe-Mere pro kermesse in Belgium.
The 23-year-old, from North Yorkshire, held off Wednesday’s Druivenkoers-Overijse winner Jerome Baugnies, of Wanty Groupe Gobert, to clinch the final podium position.
WB Veranclassic Aqua Protect’s Ludwig de Winter had earlier escaped on his own to record a solo success, with Michael van Staeyen, of Cofidis, pipping Tanfield to second spot.
The seven-man chase group were 1min 50sec behind the winner in the 168km contest which has been running since 1927.
Alex Richardson was 25th – a couple of places in front of Quick-Step Floors’ Columbian star Fernando Gaviria – at 6.25.
He spent much of the race chasing the initial break of 16, which included Tanfield, but despite closing to within 15 seconds at one stage, couldn’t get back on terms.
Meanwhile, Sam Lowe also took to the startline in Belgium. His group was pulled out after 120km of racing.
Tanfield will now move on to Holland for the Ronde van Midden Nederland, where he will help Chris Opie defend his crown.
The team for the two-day UCI 2.2 stage race will also include Rob Partridge, Dexter Gardias, James Lowsley-Williams, Rory Townsend and Joe Fry.
