Despite it being his first year racing in Britain, Tom Scully has been one of the stars of this season’s Pearl Izumi Tour Series.

The Scud added victory in Ipswich to his earlier win in Redditch, and also confirmed his victory in the IG Sprints competition, which he has led since Round Seven in Redditch.

Still sweating after having only just crossed the finishing line to win the final round of this year's Pearl IzumiTour Series, Team Raleigh’s Tom Scully said:

"That's completed the first half of my season but I'm really happy with that. For the first few laps tonight I was just trying to pan out how the race was going to go. I was feeling good so I gave it a nudge and so I'm really happy to come away with the win. I got across to the break, thought I'd test them out to see how they were going. No one seemed interested so you've got to take these opportunities when you can so I rolled with it.”

Commenting about his own performance over the whole of The Pearl Izumi Tour Series where he took two race wins and won the Series long IG Sprints jersey:

"I'm pretty happy with my first Tour Series. It's 11 rounds, a long series. But I'll come back for more for sure.”

You can see all of the action from the Grand Final in Ipswich on Monday (17th June) night at 10pm.
