Harry Tanfield tore up the record books with his stunning breakaway success at the Tour de Yorkshire on Thursday.
The 23-year-old, from Great Ayton, beat off the challenge of four fellow escapees to clinch victory in Doncaster.
And his success in the 182km opener out of Beverley ensured he etched his name forever into the race’s history.
Tanfield became the first Brit to win a stage of the contest when he outgunned JLT Condor’s Ali Slater in the finale.
His team-mate Chris Opie was third on the opening stage last year. That effort had equalled the previous best of Adam Yates in 2016. Both of those stages finished in Scarborough.
With his breathtaking triumph, Tanfield also became the first British rider to ever pull on the leader’s and points jerseys.
The king of the mountains’ is the only classification in which Brits have ever topped the standings.
Mark McNally wore the jersey after stage two in 2015. Rich Handley then collected it after stage two in 2016 before Pete Williams carried it off on the final day.
Tanfield also won the combativity jersey on Thursday – becoming the first person to ever wear it twice.
As voted by Tour de Yorkshire fans on Twitter, the North Yorkshire rouleur also picked up the prize on stage two last season.
Fellow Canyon Eisberg talent Dexter Gardias repeated the feat the following day as he became the sixth home-grown rider to win the award.
Williams, McNally, Peter Kennaugh and Ian Bibby claimed the honour during the first two editions of the popular stage race.
Tanfield’s triumphs may not end there, either. He could become the first British rider to retain a jersey should he hold on to one of three on stage two, from Barnsley to Ilkley, on Friday.
