Team Raleigh take their 2nd victory in the Tour Series at Durham

Posted by Galius Sun on Friday, May 17, 2013

Team Raleigh continued their perfect start in the 2013 Pearl Izumi Tour Series by taking victory in round two in Durham.

They follow in the footsteps of Rapha-Condor-Sharp and Endura Racing, who won the first two rounds in the 2011 and 2012 series' respectively. Both went on to take the overall title.

Individual glory on the night went to Kristian House (Rapha-Condor-JLT) for the second year in succession, and just like last year, he delivered a brilliant solo performance.

House latched onto a move by Ian Bibby (Madison Genesis), who had recovered being wiped out in a crash in Tuesday's opening round in Kirkcaldy, before mechanical problems saw the 2011 Premier Calendar winner drop back.

Behind him, Tobyn Horton (UK Youth) led home a fragmented peloton of around 20 riders, but with Tom Scully, Evan Oliphant and Lachlan Norris finishing fifth, sixth and seventh, Raleigh were the night's best team.
