Pearl Izumi Tour Series 2015 – Rounds 7 and 8. Fast, tight and very quick racing by the cream of British Cycling what’s not to like?
Out of any of the cycling events and races I cover over the course of a year I think The Tour Series is my favorite. The races only last for just over an hour but they are very intense and a challenge to cover, I think that’s why I like it so much. This year the Woking round had been moved to Croydon which was round 7 it was also supported by round 3 of the Womans Matrix Fitness Grand Prix which was won by Scot Charline Joiner from Team WNT.
An exciting race insued around the tight and twisty Croydon circuit
The main Tour Series event was not going to disappoint either. with more than a few crashes and it was unfortunately the current leaders Maddison Genesis who came off worse. With two of their riders crashing out of contention a problem when The whole series is a team points affair!
Pedal Heavens Alex Payton is being heralded as the surpise package over the last couple of seasons
But after a thrilling end it was One PRO Cycling‘s Marcin Bialoblocki that took the individual win
Two days later and the action moved to Canary Wharf. Four corners and Four straights. An all together a different kind of race.
One PRO Cycling laid down the gauntlet with a fantastic team effort.
But in one of the closest photo-finishes I can recall it was NFTO‘s Steele Von Hoff that took the individual honors from JLT Condors Ed Clancy.
