The JLT Condor pair had dominated the opening rounds of the competition in Manchester the previous weekend, but were run close to the overall victory in London by Team PedalSure, represented by Andy Tennant and Iljo Keisse.
It nearly fell apart for JLT Condor, when Mould finished a shock eighth place in Friday evening's elimination race, leaving the duo with work to do on Saturday.
“Yeah more on Friday, in one of the races I got caught out and finished eighth and so Ed was out as well. They still haven’t let me live it down, they’ve been taking the mick out of me all evening and this morning, but we’ve made up for it now, but I don’t think I’ll ever live it down,” said Mould.
Clancy added: “We lost a bit of our lead at the start of the weekend to be fair, but we held on; It was cagey, it was tactical, we weren’t being flamboyant or aggressive we just had to do the appropriate things. I feel a bit bad for Andy [Tennant] in all honesty because I just followed him everywhere and Jon followed Iljo [Keisse]. We knew if we could do that we could win it, so we played it safe and got the job done.”
The victory for JLT Condor means that they have won both the Revolution Champions League and the UK Championships.
The Champions League events pitted riders from seven top-flight WorldTour road teams against the best track riders. however, the WorldTour teams could not overhaul the dominance of the track specialists. Ian Stannard (Sky), Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) and Christian Meier (Orica-BikeExchange) were among those taking part.
Cannondale-Drapac finished the highest of the WorldTour squads, in fifth place.
Cannondale-Drapac's Ryan Mullen said: “I enjoyed it to be fair, it’s hard but it breaks up the winter for us - I’ve got a bit of track pedigree anyway, I used to do a lot of individual pursuit work. I’ll probably make a return at some point, the plan was for me was to ride the track when I was younger to get noticed. Then I got a road contract and put the track to bed, you never know I might come back and do a bit again.”

Neah Evans ensured that the Podium Ambition team scooped the Elite Women's Champions League title, despite the track return of Laura Kenny. Four-time Olympic champion Kenny was making her first racing appearance since Rio, and finished as runner-up to Evans in the newly revamped ominium competition.
Kenny commented: “Yeah I’ve really enjoyed it, I’ve had a really good time, but very difficult, it was my fifth and sixth time on the track since the games so I really haven’t done very much but it was fun, and I love racing in front of a home crowd it’s great just to be back.
"I love the Revolution the crowd is always fantastic, for me this is where it all started so it’s great to be back in front of this home crowd and this atmosphere.”
Ellie Russell and Jim Brown won the respective women's and men's Hoy Future Stars competition.
