Lucy Garner sprinted to victory in the junior women's road race at the 2011 UCI road cycling world championships in Copenhagen and Rudersdal, Denmark to hand Britain their first gold of the competition earlier today.

Garner, who celebrated her 17th birthday last week, finished ahead of Belgium's Jessy Druyts and Christina Siggaard of Denmark after 70 km of racing on a 14 km circuit north of the Danish capital.

Italian Rossella Ratto and Mieke Kroger of Germany, the latter a medallist in the world cup time trial, had looked set to duel for the gold, but fell victim to a strong headwind and the ensuing peloton in the home straight.
