A mistake by Britain's Stuart Dangerfield yesterday handed victory to France's Anthony Langella in the mountain time trial - the opening event of the Isle of Man international week.

Dangerfield led Langella on the five-mile climb from Ramsey to the Mountain Box but, after descending at more than 60mph, he was forced to brake hard and do a U-turn after he took a wrong turn.

Graeme Obree, Scotland's world pursuit champion and last year's winner, withdrew before the start because of a cold and chest infection.
