Evan Oliphant wins Tour of the Reservoir

Evan Oliphant wins, Tour of the Reservoir 2013, stage two

Team Raleigh's Evan Oliphant took victory in the Tour of the Reservoir Two-Day in Northumberland, sneaking off the front of the race to win stage two and snatch the overall win too.

The 31-year-old from Edinburgh crossed the line just a handful of seconds clear of the rest, but it was enough to take the overall victory from under the noses of the UK Youth team and secure his first Premier Calendar race win since the 2006 Ryedale Grand Prix.
