The 19-year-old beat two of the stars of the Wiggle Honda team - double gold Olympic medalist Laura Trott and Germany’s Charlotte Becker into second and third place.

Riding around the city centre course in Nottingham for team Pearl Izumi Sports Tour International, reigning World and European champion Katie beat Laura and Charlotte to a sprint finish in the technical circuit.

Speaking after her triumphant win, Katie said: “It’s great to win such a prestigious event in front of such amazing crowds. Here’s hoping The Milk Race returns again next year!”
