The team in green had Jack Pullar finishing second by JLT-Condor‘s Jon Mould, and three riders in ninth, 10th and 11th, the first team to bring four riders home.
Raleigh-GAC, whose foreign riders have animated the racing thus far but without winning success, had Spaniard Albert Torres in third.
A 21-man group formed early on and it was from that large bunch that Mould emerged the winner.
However, JLT – who have won all four individual rounds – were fourth in the team round and their lead in the overall standings has been cut to two points; Madison-Genesis are third and Pedal Heaven seven points in arrears to JLT.
In the second round of the women’s Matrix Fitness GP, Team Breeze – a team consisting entirely of British Cycling riders – took the individual win and team prize.
Annasley Park won by 20 seconds from Jess Roberts (Liv CC), with Grace Garner (Podium Ambition) rolling in third. It means that Park leads the individual and sprint classificiation, but Drops CT’s second place on the evening, allied to their win at the first round in Motherwell, remain top of the team standings.
