America's Taylor Phinney (Trek-Livestrong) became the first of his countrymen to win the Under 23 Paris-Roubaix race on Sunday. The 18-year-old outpaced 10 riders that entered the famed Roubaix velodrome in one group to claim top honours.

"How do you like them apples?," Phinney wrote on his Twitter following the race. "F***ing beautiful. Lovin' life, my team, and my sponsors (especially Trek!). No problems today. Yeeeeah."

Denmark's Nikola Aistrup (Team Capinordic) claimed second behind Phinney, while Italian rider Giorgio Brambilla (De Nardi Bergamasca) rounded out the podium.

Phinney joins the likes of Stephen Roche, Marc Madiot, Thor Hushovd and Yaroslav Popovych as a winner of the Under 23 Paris-Roubaix race. Phinney, son of former professional cyclist Davis, showed his form leading in to Roubaix by claiming Fleche du Sud's opening stage earlier this month.
