Metaltek-Knights of Old take first Tour Series win in Redditch

Metaltek team winners, Tour Series 2013, round seven, Redditch

Metaltek-Knights of Old have taken their first win in the Pearl Izumi Tour Series following confusion in the final four laps of the race in Redditch, won in fine solo style by Tom Scully (Raleigh).

After a five-man break containing Scully had lapped the main peloton, riders appeared unsure as to which lap would count towards the final results. Three Metaltek riders led the bunch over the line with three laps showing on the board. However, many teams appeared not to contest the sprint until a lap later.

The confusion, however, should not overshadow what was an impressive showing from Raleigh's Kiwi rider, who set off on his own with over eight laps to go and never looked like being caught.

UK Youth, despite finishing down the order on the night, remain in the red jerseys of overall series leaders with five rounds to go.

Earlier in the evening Hannah Barnes (MG-Maxifuel) took her second individual win of the series, sprinting to the line ahead of Laura Massey (Abergavenny RC) and Charline Joiner (MG-Maxifuel) to extend her lead in the series. Her team also took the team prize on the evening.
