A BMX rider from Newton Abbot has become British number one – furthering his hopes of qualifying for the Rio Olympics.
Dan McBride beat current world champion Liam Phillips to claim his maiden championship at elite men's level.
The 20-year-old trains alongside Phillips as part of the Olympic Academy programme in Manchester, but the two went head-to-head for the elite crown at Perry Park in Birmingham.
McBride's win was part of a successful championships for Decoy BMX Club, who also celebrated an age group title for 14-year-old Emily Green.
In the elite men's final, involving eight riders, Phillips got off to a poor start and was left trailing.
Then early leader Kyle Evans was involved in a crash which left McBride to cross the line first.
Former South Devon College student McBride said: "It's great because there's a national series that runs alongside it and I've won that before, but never won a British championship before.
"It's a one-off race which if you win you get to race with the '01' plate for the following season as you are British number one."
McBride said his hopes of making the Team GB squad for Rio would rest on his progress in the world cup series which starts next year.
"It's all done with qualification – there's a world cup series which gives you points," he said.
"The top five countries get to take three in the men's class and two in the women's class.
"They don't take all the squad to every race, but qualification starts next year.
"There's a lot of stepping stones along the way but that's the overall goal – the world cup is the main aim and it's all looking towards the Olympics."
McBride has been with Decoy BMX club since 1999 when he was just six, and is among the first intake of riders in the Olympic Academy programme in Manchester.
He trains alongside Shanaze Reade and Liam Phillips full time, while also studying mechanics with Fiat.
Elsewhere, Emily Green won her age-group title after leading the final from beginning to end.
The Torquay Academy student has been riding for six years, and according to dad, Martin Green, it was well deserved.
"It wasn't a surprise, she has been due a national win all year," he said.
"She has been working hard and the win was on the cards."
Emily is now applying to enter the Olympic Development and Talent Team.
"The Talent Team is the first step on the coaching ladder and hopefully will lead to an Olympic position," said Green.
"It [the Olympics] is a long way off but I think it's a realistic aim.
"Next year she will be doing another national campaign, and hopefully claim a national series as well as the British title.
"And then going to the World Championships in Rotterdam if all goes to plan."
Green also acknowledged fellow British Champion Dan McBride, and said: "We've known Dan since we started at Decoy.
"Emily and Dan are both of a similar stature, and she really admires everything that he does."
Five other riders from Decoy BMX also reached their respective finals.
Ethan Squibb (7th), Benji Armitage (5th), Katie Yeates (5th), Tom Novis (4th) and Natasha Bradley (4th) all helped to round off a highly successful championships for the club.
