This year’s Pearl Izumi Tour Series saw a new trophy being introduced for the top non-UCI team in the final overall standings, with Pedal Heaven sealing victory and third overall in the standings. We caught up with Team Manager Tim Elverson and rider Alex Paton after the podium celebrations to hear about the win.

Having made their Pearl Izumi Tour Series full debuts in 2014, Pedal Heaven headed into this year’s Series as one of three non-UCI teams alongside Velosure Starley Primal and SportGrub Kuota.

With strong performances from the whole team from the off, they secured the non-UCI trophy after Canary Wharf, sealing third overall at the penultimate round. Hear from Tim and Alex in the video above.
