British Cycling Junior Academy rider Jess Roberts (Liv Epic Coaching) won the fourth round of the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix as the Tour Series reached Wembley Park.

The Drops team extended their lead at the top of the standings, as Robert’s win left the teams to battle for the top prize in her wake.

Roberts went clear alone with a handful of laps to go, taking a fine solo win outside the London landmark, as Drops did enough in the chasing group to pull clear of Team Breeze and Team WNT in the battle for the Series title. The team now have a nine-point lead, the largest so far of their 2017 campaign.

JLT Condor moved back into the lead of The Tour Series with a convincing victory at the Wembley Park round, although they were denied the individual win on the night as ONE Pro Cycling's Steele Von Hoff powered to victory.

Von Hoff, a previous winner of the Tour Series at Canary Wharf, was a member of a seven-rider group at the front of the race, and managed to jump clear to overcome the JLT Condor train.

JLT Condor, who placed four riders in the top eight, now have just a one-point lead over Madison Genesis, with The Tour Series looking set to be a two-horse race as it nears the halfway point, with BIKE Channel Canyon seven points further back.

Action from the Wembley Park round of The Tour Series will be shown on ITV4 at 7pm on Wednesday 17th May and available on demand via the ITV Player.
