Power “House” Kristian Solos To His First Victory Of The 2015 Series

 

JLT Condor presented by Mavic’s Kristian House powers his way around the new 1.4Km circuit in Motherwell.

 

Scotland’s only visit by the Tour Series this season saw a trio of riders break away in the earlier part of the race.

 

House, Chris Opie – ONE Pro Cycling and Mike Northey – Madison Genesis put a good thirty seconds into the peloton after the first Chain Reaction Sprint, won by Chris Lawless – Team Wiggins.

 

The pace was high, and the strung out peloton failed to close the escapees down with-in the hour of racing.

 

House, powered away from Opie and Northey with two laps to go, giving him his first victory of the 2015 Series.

 

NFTO left it too late to set Steele Von Hoff up for the uphill sprint to the line, but he managed to fend Ed Clancy off, for the best of the bunch sprint.
