2011 champions Rapha Condor-JLT retook the lead of this year's Tour Series after finishing second behind Madison-Genesis in Barrow last night.
Graham Briggs took the individual win for Rapha, although Roger Hammond's Madison team managed to place riders in second, sixth and seventh to claim their second round victory in as many days.
Briggs escaped with Kiwi Tom Scully halfway through the race, before outsprinting him at the finish.
NFTO led the way after the event's opening two rounds in Stoke-on-Trent on Tuesday, but finished a lowly sixth in the team result on the night and relinquished their red and yellow leaders' jerseys.
Peterborough, returning to the series after a year's absence, hosts round three on Tuesday. A round of the women's Matrix GP Series also takes place in the cathedral city.
