Pearl Izumi Tour Series 2013 - Round 6

Colchester 30 May 2013: Team UK Youth stretch their Pearl Izumi Tour Series lead with Individual win for Jon Mould

Jon Mould took the biggest win of his career to date, clinching victory in Colchester’s Pearl Izumi Tour Series round to give his UK Youth squad both the individual and team wins on the night. The Welshman headed breakaway companions Richard Lang and Roman Van Uden, the latter who was tailed off in the closing laps, to take his first Pearl Izumi Tour Series win.

Behind the break Tobyn Horton led in the main field for fourth, with that and Niklas Gustavsson’s eighth helping UK Youth to another, narrow, win, ahead of Raleigh who took second, fifth and seventh for their three counters.

Team UK Youth now enjoy a seven point lead at the top of the standings over Raleigh, who moved back into second place, one point in front of Series debutants Madison Genesis.

The break of Mould, Lang and Van Uden formed approaching the second IG Sprint and built a lead that eventually stretched to over a minute, from a peloton which was steadily reduced around the testing Essex circuit.

A well timed attack from Mould with a handful of laps to go shed Van Uden, with Lang dispatched commandingly in the long final sprint up Colchester’s gently rising High Street.

There was consolation for Raleigh as Tom Scully took the evening’s Costa Express Fastest Lap while Lang was the Round Six IG Sprint winner.  Alexandre Blain, who was prevented from starting with a broken finger, lost his IG Sprints lead overall as Kristian House drew level on 37 points, with Scully one point further in arrears.

Highlights of Round Six in Colchester will be shown on ITV4 at 10pm on Friday 31st May, with a repeat at 6.25am on Saturday 1st June.  Round Seven sees The Pearl Izumi Tour Series return to Redditch in Worcestershire for the second year, on Tuesday 4th June.  Alongside the men the women’s Johnson Health Tech Grand Prix Series will make its debut at the Midlands venue, for Round Three of the Series.
