Andy Tennant took individual glory in the fourth round of cycling’s Tour Series at Durham on Tuesday night.

With Durham hosting the men’s race for a ninth consecutive year, Tennant got the better of Madison Genesis’ Connor Swift in a last lap sprint.

It was the first time Durham had ever hosted a women’s Tour Series race, as well as the men’s hill-climb during the afternoon.

Nikki Juniper won the women’s race, while Jack Pullar clocked the fastest time in the hill-climb.

JLT Condor went into the men’s race at the top of the table, but a fine night from Madison Genesis saw four of their riders finish inside the top 10.

With Swift just behind individual winner Tennant, Richard Handley finished sixth with Jonathan McEvoy in seventh.

Tobyn Horton’s 10th place finish ensured a fine night for Madision Genesis, and with JLT Condor only having on rider in the top 25, Madison Genesis took a five point Tour Series lead over JLT Condor on the night.

An impressive team performance from Canyon Eisberg saw them climb to second in the overall table, four points behind Madison Genesis.

In the women’s race, NJC-Biemme-Echelon clawed back some of Team Breeze’s overall lead.

Juniper’s team finished with four riders in the top seven, with only one Team Breeze rider making up that top seven.

The Durham cobbles proved troublesome in the women’s race, with the field well spread out from the off.

Juniper and Anna Henderson broke free, but a poor pit stop for Henderson gifted Juniper the individual win.

Henderson claimed second, while Gabriella Shaw was back in third.

NJC-Biemme-Echelon are now within two points of Team Breeze going into Saturday’s round at Aberystwyth.

Henderson claimed the fastest lap in the women’s race, while Tennant took the men’s fastest lap in a time of 2:03.572.
