Cycling: Endura strengthen position at head of Halfords Tour

Have your say

Endura Racing Team added a further honour to their growing list of successes with a win in last night’s penultimate race of the Halfords Tour Series in Woking.

Already leading in the overall standings, the West Lothian-based cycling outfit extended their advantage at the top with a success that featured three riders in the top five places.

Aussie Zak Dempster took the individual honours with a searing final sprint, while Ian Bibby and Johnny McEvoy were fourth and fifth respectively. The win means Endura cannot be caught and they will be looking to celebrate in style when the final race of this year’s competition takes place in Stoke on Trent tomorrow.

Meanwhile, defending champion Bruce Croall (City of Edinburgh) extended his lead in the Meadowbank Track League with wins in the 15 lap scratch and points races. He now heads second-placed Scott Macrae by nine points.

Croall’s clubmate Louise Haston moved to the top of the women’s league after wins in the 500 metres sprint, elimination race and 15 lap scratch, plus a second place in the eight lap block handicap event.
