The stop-start season and quick return to form delighted Martin.

He said: "This is probably my best result all season and only my third race after a six-week break recovering from a broken finger. I'm super happy."

Caton's result was even more impressive after a crash and puncture before the start and four bike-changes during the race to deal with the build-up of mud.

John Jones was eighth.
