House wins Sheffield G.P. - 24/07/14
Kristian House took victory in the penultimate round of the British Cycling Elite Circuit Series in Sheffield last night.
House outsprinted national criterium champion Adam Blythe as well as the fast finishing Tobyn Horton to take his first win in the Sheffield event. The 34 year-old had been part of a five-man move that went clear at just over half distance.
Two Rapha Condor JLT riders will represent England at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Ed Clancy will take part in several events on the track, including the team pursuit where he will team up with Sir Bradley Wiggins, and Tom Moses will line up as part of a very strong England team for the road race.
While double Olympic gold medalist Ed Clancy is no stranger to major international competitions, for Moses Glasgow 2014 will be his first games. The 22 year-old is one of only two UK based riders selected for the Team England road squad, and was naturally delighted with his selection.
It’s great to get the call up for the England team for the Glasgow games. It is pretty close to being a home games, so it is pretty special.
