Graham Briggs led JLT Condor to victory in the Croydon round of The Tour Series on Thursday night, the fifth leg of the 2017 competition, taking the individual win as JLT Condor moved two-points clear of Madison Genesis at the halfway point.

Briggs sprinted to victory in a rain-soaked race, grabbing his sixth Tour Series individual win to make him the third most successful rider in the history of the series, behind just teammates Jon Mould and Ed Clancy.

Briggs was followed across the line by ONE Pro Cycling's George Harper and Madison Genesis' Tobyn Horton as a 17-rider group contested the finish.
