After eight hard days of racing, Mike Cuming took the biggest win of his career last week, claiming the overall title at the Tour of Korea.
Cuming had led the UCI 2.2 stage race from the sixth stage, where his bold attack on the stage to Yangyang moved him from fifth to first overall.
Despite only holding a slender twelve second lead, and with only two teammates remaining going into the seventh stage, the men in black rode out of their skin to defend his yellow jersey.

Tour Series Round 8: Canary Wharf - 07/06/13
Rapha Condor JLT’s Ed Clancy finished second at Canary Wharf in the eighth round of the Pearl Izumi Tour Series last night.
It was a tough race for the Men in Black who gave their all in an attempt to get the Olympic Gold Medallist across the line first. Clancy was in brilliant form coming into the race, with two victories under his belt already at Aberystwyth and Torquay. The team made a tactical decision early on to keep building on Clancy’s form, deciding to forgo leader Kristian House’s defence of the sprint jersey.
