Clancy makes Pearl Izumi Tour Series history

12 June 2013 / 10:11

Double Olympic team pursuit champion Ed Clancy became the most successful individual rider in Pearl Izumi Tour Series history with victory in this year’s ninth round in Woking.

Clancy, who helped Britain retain their Olympic team pursuit title from Beijing 2008 at London 2012 last summer while also taking omnium bronze, finished first ahead of Yanto Barker and Dean Downing.

That gave him his third win of the 2013 Series as he moved onto six individual wins, one ahead of Downing, and became the first rider to take victory in three individual rounds in one season.

Clancy hit the front after exiting the final hairpin and was not to be caught with Barker’s second place helping Team UK Youth to their sixth team victory from nine races.
