JLT Condor duo Ed Clancy and Jon Mould started round two of the Revolution Champions League in London atop the standings and after two days of racing, that’s where they remained to seal overall victory.
Six-day sensation Iljo Keisse and world pursuit champion Andy Tennant of Team PedalSure tried their hardest to unseat the pair and half way through Saturday’s event, moved one point ahead of Clancy and Mould.
In a thrilling Madison TT event Clancy and Mould set a fast pace that could not be matched. The result put JLT Condor back ahead in the standings.
By the final race of the evening JLT Condor had a 13 points lead over Team PedalSure. German squad, Maloja Pushbikers rounded out the podium in third.
Speaking about the tactics of the weekend, Clancy explained that their game plan was to mark out their closest opponents. “We lost a bit of our lead at the start of the weekend to be fair, but we held on; It was cagey, it was tactical, we weren’t being flamboyant or aggressive we just had to do the appropriate things,”
“I feel a bit bad for Andy [Tennant] in all honesty because I just followed him everywhere and Jon followed Iljo [Keisse]. We knew if we could do that we could win it, so we played it safe and got the job done.”
The event concludes JLT Condor p/b Mavic’s 2016 season.
The 2017 season will begin in Australia on January 1 at the Bay Crits in Melbourne, Australia.
