Madison Genesis move into The Tour Series Lead – Round 3

A dominant performance by Madison Genesis on a slick Northwich circuit returned them to the lead of The Tour Series for the first time since they were crowned champions at the end of the 2015 Series.

The Milton Keynes based team had all five riders in the top nine to take their second win in two nights, following victory in Stoke-on-Trent, putting them level on points with JLT Condor and into the lead on countback – the first time in over a year that a team other than JLT Condor have had their name at the top of the standings of the team based Series.

Despite the dominance of their performance though, it was former Movistar Team rider Enrique Sanz who took the individual race win, his first in the Series and the first for Team Raleigh since 2014.  Sanz continued his strong start to his Tour Series career, having taken third and second from the opening events before winning the first ever Northwich race.

With rain sweeping in shortly before the start of the men’s race the circuit was soaked resulting in adverse conditions and a number of spills that split the field, in particular affecting leaders JLT Condor and challengers BIKE Channel Canyon, who both lost riders to the tricky conditions.

Sanz’s teammate Sebastian Mora held onto the Wiggle Points Jersey despite failing to finish as the result of a crash while Sanz also won the Brother Fastest Lap trophy, once again taken on the final lap of the race.

Tour Series Round 2 – Jones and Archibald take Stoke-on-Trent

JLT Condor and Drops remained at the top of the men and women’s Tour Series following the second event of the season in Stoke-on-Trent, but only just after two action packed races in the Potteries.

JLT Condor held on to the leader’s jerseys presented by Eisberg as their Australian sprinter Brenton Jones won the race, but several members of the team were brought down in a penultimate lap crash that decimated the front group.

That disrupted the main group, and in particular the efforts of JLT Condor, but Jones hung on to claim his first race win in only his second Tour Series event, just ahead of Team Raleigh GAC’s Enrique Sanz and BIKE Channel Canyon’s James Lowsley Williams.

With a trio of riders firmly inside the top 10, Madison Genesis took the team win, making them the second most successful team in Tour Series history, and moving them up into second spot in the standings behind JLT Condor.

The defending champions now lead by two-points from Madison Genesis with BIKE Channel Canyon a further point behind as they head to Round Three in Northwich.

Earlier in the afternoon it had been the sheer power of Team WNT duo Katie Archibald and Eileen Roe, along with Drops rider Rebecca Durrell and Team Breeze’s Manon Lloyd that had decimated the field around the 1.4-kilometre Stoke-on-Trent course.

Led by the World and Olympic Champion, the quartet had pulled clear of the field, with Archibald heading them home for a one-four with teammate Roe.  That though wasn’t enough to dislodge Drops from the red and white Matrix Fitness GP Series leader jerseys, with Annie Simpson and Lucy Shaw’s rides at the front of the peloton maintaining their one-point lead at the top.

As well as taking the Brother Fastest Lap, Archibald also secured the Eisberg Sprints jersey and moved into the Series’ individual lead, ahead of Durrell.

In the men’s Series’ Jones took the Brother Fastest Lap on the final tour of the event, while Sebastian Mora continues in the Wiggle Points Jersey.  Spirit Racing Tifosi moved into the joint lead of the Midlands competition for guest teams alongside Brother NRG Driverplan, ahead of the deciding race in that division in Northwich.
