JLT Condor presented by Mavic on The Tour Series podium following the final round in Portsmouth in June 2016
The eighth year of The Tour Series showcased a rapidly growing women's scene as the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series went from strength-to-strength providing a second top-line set of elite racing alongside the men's events at over half of the venues.
JLT Condor became the first team to win three Tour Series titles, adding to their 2011 and 2014 crowns.
The Series got underway with a first ever visit to the Isle of Man, opening the island's CycleFest in the town of Ramsey under beautiful blue skies. JLT Condor presented by Mavic put the early marker down with a win in the opening Team Time Trial, setting their stall out for what would be a dominant Series.
Star of the Series in 2016 turned out to be Jon Mould, who would lead from the front taking a record six individual wins to help JLT Condor to a comfortable title, finally sealed at the last event in Portsmouth, but an almost certainty from midway through the Series.
Another standout rider was Pedal Heaven's Rory Townsend, picking up the Chain Reaction Cycles Points Jersey and helping his squad take their first ever round win at the final event in Portsmouth.
The women's Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series proved to be highly competitive with the new Drops team going head-to-head with double champions Podium Ambition.
Initially the Series looked like going the way of the new kids on the block, with a spectacular solo win by Alice Barnes in Stevenage the highlight, but Grace Garner led the fightback with a win in Croydon, helping herself to the individual title and her teammates to the overall prize for the third year in succession.
