Matthieu Boulo rode to victory in the Pearl Izumi Tour Series hill climb in Gorey in blisteringly hot conditions on Friday afternoon.

Boulo, riding a 53×26 and setting off third from last recorded a 3’09.62 to usurp previous leader Adam Blythe and take the win at the top of the Mont de la Guerande climb above Gorey.

Joking afterwards, the Frenchman who also won in Redditch, claimed his family would have been able to see his victory from France, albeit with binoculars!

“Ultimately it’s a win for the team and getting the team that recognition.  I’m in very good condition and very pleased.

“It’ a great Series, there’s always been good riders, good crowd and a great atmosphere, it’s a good place to race.  I’m proud of my wins.  Racing’s racing, it doesn’t matter if I’m in France, Spain or England, I want to win!”

Behind Boulo and Blythe came George Harper, ahead of Starley Primal’s Jack Pullar and Kristian House, who helped Rapha Condor JLT’s five riders to the win thanks to their cumulative time.
