MANX INTERNATIONAL ROAD RACE
THORNABY rider Paul Curran played a major part in Britain's win in the Manx International Cycle Race.
Curran finished third behind winner Darryl Webster from Leicester and Frenchman Phillipe Chaumontet.
With less than a mile to go in the 113-mile race over the Isle of Man TT motorcycle course, it was still anyone's race, with Webster finally getting home by a third of a wheel.
