Jack Pullar sprinted to second place and Alex Paton was fourth as Canyon Eisberg went on the offensive at the Bristol Grand Prix.
The pair were part of a four-man break which went to the line where Matt Gibson clinched victory for JLT Condor.
Newly-crowned national road race champion Connor Swift, of Madison Genesis, split Pullar and Paton in the finale.
However, second spot for the 28-year-old Lancastrian was enough to reignite the Tour of Britain qualification race.
Tim Elverson’s squad have now leapfrogged Team Wiggins into the fourth and final berth with one round – next weekend’s Stockton Grand Prix – remaining.
Meanwhile, after his seventh place in the Tour of the Reservoir last month, Pullar has risen to second in the Grand Prix Series standings behind Swift.
A peloton of 140 riders rolled out for the 18-lap 130km Bristol tear-up – the second race of five in the British Cycling championship.
Harry Tanfield and Paton lit the blue touchpaper with an early attack. And following a crash in the peloton, a three-man chase group emerged.
Pullar was involved, alongside Swift and Gibson, as Canyon Eisberg aimed to keep control at the head of affairs.
The junction was made before the third lap was complete and the quintet soon stretched their advantage to 30 seconds.
The gap held around that mark as further chase groups were launched from the bunch.
Elverson’s squad were always attentive, though. They relentlessly marked moves as none managed to bridge across to the front group.
Tom Pidcock crashed out of one chase with little more than 11 laps to go and, along with his Wiggins team-mate Gabriel Cullaigh, was forced to retire.
Still the front group pressed on. At the halfway mark, with nine laps remaining, Tanfield sat up leaving Paton, Pullar, Gibson and Swift.
And the quartet soon began to crank up the pressure, extending their lead to more than a minute with seven laps remaining.
Just 31 riders, including Rory Townsend and Dexter Gardias, were left in the next group on the road at this stage as the pace and heat took its toll.
The advantage held firm into the final two laps of action as the four men looked destined to fight for victory.
And so it proved, with Gibson having enough of a kick left to beat Pullar to the line as the national jersey of Swift had to settle for third.
