Wembley Park to hosts London round on May 29

There will be some 2018 Commonwealth Games medallists on show when this year’s OVO Energy Tour Series hosts its London round in Wembley Park on May 29.

Defending men’s Series champions JLT Condor will be led by Jon Mould of Wales, who took silver in the Commonwealth Games road race last month.

“I’ll be looking for success there after representing Wales in the Commonwealth Games,” said Mould, who holds the record for winner of the most individual rounds in OVO Energy Tour Series history.

“I think the title defence will be tough; everyone’s gunning to win it so we’ll have to give it everything, just like we’ve done in the past.”

The Canyon Eisberg men’s team will feature siblings Charlie and Harry Tanfield, who came away from the Games with three medals combined.

“It’s good to be back in the UK and hopefully we brought the sun with us,” said Harry, who took silver for England in the men’s individual time trial.

“There should be some really exciting racing and I’m interested to see how the new teams go.

“I think it is going to be really hard and really tight between JLT Condor, Madison Genesis, ONE Pro Cycling and us for the title.”

Other English medallists scheduled to compete during the Series are ONE Pro Cycling’s Chris Latham and Emily Kay (Torelli-Brother), who took bronze in the men’s and women’s scratch races respectively.

Although he did not win a Commonwealth Games medal, Tobyn Horton’s seventh-place finish in the men’s road race suggests the Guernsey rider will play a key role in Madison Genesis’ quest to claim a first OVO Energy Tour Series title since 2015.

“The Commonwealth Games came at a good time of year; it gets you going well early in the season,” said Horton.

The OVO Energy Tour Series is unticketed and free-to-watch. For more information, visit wembleypark.com.
