KAZAKHSTAN filled first and second places in yesterday's 32-mile Willaston Handicap road race on the second day of the Isle of Man international week.

Alexandre Nadobenko, who won two stages in the Milk Race, narrowly beat Evgeni Moskalev, the former Soviet champion. Franck Laurance, of France, was third, ahead of Ireland's Eugene Moriaty and the Welsh international Alun Owen.

The Irish team have appealed over Ken Tobin's disqualification in the Onchan Cup. Lee Mosley, of Yorkshire, was given the race after Tobin's machine was found to be overgeared, even though it had previously passed a gear check. The protest will cite the differences between British and international gearing restrictions for junior riders.
