Tour Series Redditch – New faces in NFTO Line-up

Tour Series Round 2
On Tuesday 19th May, NFTO take on the second round of the Pearl Izumi Tour Series, in Redditch. After a strong showing in the first race, they are keen to get out there and try and take the top step this week in both the team and individual.


The circuit in Round 2 at Redditch has a long climb in it as well as a drag up back straight along with a technical section on cobbles so another brutal race is expected. The team comes into round two with some different riders after Ian Bibby and Rob Partridge have gone to Ireland for the Ras.

Steele von Hoff and Johnny McEvoy come into the round in good form, having raced the previous Tour Series round and some big races in the lead up. After Steele’s mechanical that had him chasing for half of round 1, and Johnny’s 3rd place, both will be eager to move up in the rankings.

Zach May impressed at the Isle of Wight and is a crucial member of the team. Debuting in the Tour Series for 2015 is James Lowsley-Williams and Dale Appleby. Both have been in great form this season and have experience on this circuit.


It also was important for them to be included in the tour series roster as early as possible as they are strong members of the team and boost NFTO’s fire power for the teams classification.
The weather looks pretty cold and wet for tomorrow so it could be a dangerous race.
