Tour Series Durham - OVO Tour Series, Round 4, Durham.
The OVO Tour Series visited Durham for the ninth time in its 10 year history. Durham is regarded as the toughest couse of the series and one of the favourite venues of both spectators and riders alike. This year the event saw the first ever men's individual hill climb, 500 meters up the cobbles of South Street. Also, for the first time, the Tour Series features a women's race at every round. Fortunately the rain held off as the crowds gathered to see the riders tackle the 1.4 km course. The difficult course features a cobbled descent down Crossgate before turning the tight corner onto the tough cobbled slopes of South Street.read more
