Tom Moses sprinted home to win stage two of the Tour of the Reservoir, to complete a fine weekend of racing at the opening round of the HSBC UK | Grand Prix Series.
In a tight race the lead changed hands several times – but it was a group of six that broke away at the front after the opening lap.
Karol Domagalski, who crossed the line for a joint-victory with One Pro Cycling teammates Kamil Gradek and Tom Stewart in stage one, was among the peloton in hot pursuit and they managed to whittle down the gap from over three minutes towards the end.
But in a grandstand finish, it was JLT Condor rider Moses who sprinted home to beat teammate Ian Bibby and Madison Genesis star Jonathan McEvoy to claim a memorable win.

Dexter Gardias finished fourth after a brave late charge, while Mick O’Loughlin was the highest U23 rider – finishing fifth.
Bibby tops the table
Bibby takes of the lead of the series with 51 points, just one clear of Stewart – while Dexter, Domagalski and Moses complete the top five after a consistent weekend.
One Pro Cycling may have had just one rider in the top ten in stage two, but they hold a clear lead at the top of the team standings.
They sit on 72 points, 21 clear of JLT Condor – with Madison Genesis in a clear third on 43, 18 clear Team Wiggins.
