Metaltek – Knights of Old took their first ever Pearl Izumi Tour Series victory in Redditch

The win came as the team capitalized on confusion amongst teams and riders after Team Raleigh’s Tom Scully had impressively lapped the field.

Once Scully passed the field, followed by similar advances from Liam Holohan, Chris Opie, Kristian House and Mike Northey, there was confusion as to which lap would count towards the final results. With the majority of the field in the unusual position of having been lapped, but still battling for vital placings for the team competition, teams appeared confused as to when the placings of lapped riders would be taken.
