Majorca is quickly becoming a hot-spot for the British racing fraternity and this year was no different with 19 Britons lining up in the recent Cinturon Tour of Majorca.
The Plowman Craven Madison team was at full strength in the race, with Tom Murray taking the metas volantes jersey, second in the mountains competition and second in the special sprint competition. Fellow Briton Russell Downing won a stage while Andrew Tennant was seventh overall.
After relentless attacks from the Plowman Craven team, Murray managed to escape 5km into the second stage, scooping up valuable mountains and sprint points. Murray was joined in the break by Sergio Montoya; Murray took honours on three consecutive ascents before the duo was finally reeled in by the peloton 120km later.
The team then worked hard for the rest of the race to protect Murray?s metas volantes jersey, although he lost out on the mountains jersey to Montoya who also took the race overall.
