MADISON.CO.UK finished the inaugural Tour Series campaign in fourth place following the final leg of the competition last week.
The Harpenden-based team went into the final event, held on the sea-front at Southend, in fourth place but were unable to build on that as the top three teams battled it out to win the Tour Series title.
People flocked to the sea-front to see the final and they were not disappointed.
The top three sides were separated by just a point going in to the event with Team Halfords Bike Hut (the tour name of the Great Britain cycling squad) triumphing to take the title.
