Olympic gold medallist Ed Clancy wins Woking Tour Series cycle race


The professional Pearl Izumi Tour Series cycle race in Woking was a closely fought battle of the bikes, with Olympic medallist Ed Clancy snatching individual victory.

Exiting the final Peacocks Hairpin, it was the black Rapha Condor-JLT jersey of Clancy that hit the front with no other rider able to pass the double Olympic champion on the dash to the line.

The Woking win makes Ed Clancy the most successful individual rider in Tour Series history.

Preceding the nail-biting men’s race was the penultimate round of the Johnson Health Tech Grand Prix Series.

The current series leader, Hannah Barnes took her third win in extraordinary style after an early crash left her injured.

The MG Maxifuel rider crashed early on in the race, sustaining injuries that left her requiring nine stitches and hospital treatment post-race, but bounced back to take the bunch sprint.

Earlier on in the day, the Celebrate Woking Community Races saw participants take the opportunity to race like the professionals on the purpose-built circuit.

Hundreds of schoolchildren, cheered on by their parents, family members and friends, also took part in a series of inter-school races. The most successful school was Gordon’s School from West End, closely followed by St John the Baptist from Kingfield and Greenfields School from Woking.

The highly competitive Team Race followed as twelve teams, made up of four cyclists, tested their mettle by completing three laps of the 1.4km circuit. The winners were Pure Motion Cycles from West Byfleet, followed by Foxhills Men’s Cycling and Charlotteville Rascals Coaches.
