Isle of Man cyclist Mark Christian has won his third National Madison Championship title in Manchester.

The 100% ME pairing of Christian and Simon Yates won the opening two sprints and went on to claim a commanding victory in the 200 lap race.

"We have been putting a lot of track work in during the winter with the academy and it has obviously paid off," Christian said.

Alex Dowsett and Tom Murray claimed silver for a second consecutive year.

George Atkins and Owain Doull claimed bronze.

Manx cyclist Christian won his first British Madison title with the Isle of Man's Peter Kennaugh in 2009 and a second in 2010 with Luke Rowe.
