Tour Series Peterborough


I left a Champagne reception at the British Library for Peterborough. Not often you hear that but when it comes to cycling the city just keeps on giving. After hosting the Tour of Cambridgeshire, tonight it was hosting the penultimate round of the Tour Series.

I made it up just in time for the elite men’s race and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. There were a small group of us from the club and I bumped into many more people from other clubs including ToC organiser Tom Caldwell, exhausted but still buzzing from the weekend. I think the buzzing bit applied for most of us and there was one question on everyones lips; are you going to Denmark?

The race was fast and furious. A small and strong breakaway established and stayed away, but containing Ed Clancy the outcome was inevitable and his win convincing.
