HARPENDEN'S Madison.co.uk cycling team remain hot on the heels of Candi TV in the Tour Series event after the latest rounds of competition.
Every week, team Madison battle through two races against top Olympian names such as Ed Clancy and Rob Hayles from Halfords Bikehut (the Great British Squad team).
The atmospheric, crowd pulling series began in Milton Keynes in May this year; and Madison have successfully managed to collect enough points to stay in the top three in the league table and the series is more than halfway through.
Earlier this month in the city centre of Woking the team excelled and gained the most points on that night.
Also on that lucky night, Tony Gibb, the World Champion medallist, came second across the line narrowly being beaten by the current National Criterium champion averaging 28 mph. Stephen Adams took third in the heated race.
The team, formally known as Plowman Craven Madison, then finished third on the night in Peterborough behind Team Halfords Bikehut and Candi TV with Gibb the first Madison.co.uk rider across the line in seventh place.

Team-mates Adams and Jeroen Janssen finished in ninth and 10th securing the team third spot.
The series moved north to Blackpool last week with the Madison.co.uk boys finishing third again. Tom Barras was the first rider home for Madison in fourth spot with Gibb crossing the line in seventh place.
The result was enough to take the team to second in the overall standings with four races remaining.
Gibb was just pipped to the post by Olympian Clancy in Blackpool as Madison had to settle for third place again with John Mozely and Barras finishing in eighth and ninth respectively.
