Now, however, the focus for Mould is on a victory at UCI level, with the Beaumont Trophy – now in its third year as part of the UCI Europe Tour – next on the cards in Northumberland.
Connor Dunne’s victory in the Rutland-Melton Classic – also part of the UCI calendar – has set the tone for JLT-Condor, and Mould wants success of his own as he looks ahead to what could be a big second half to the season.
He says: “The Beaumont Trophy, the week before the road nationals, is a big one for this team – UCI 1.2 ranking, at home, in the UK. It’s a big one for the six of us who are going to ride it.
“I want to get a result at a UCI race and it’s also a stepping stone to making sure we qualify for the Tour of Britain.
“The nationals is just a smashfest and you’re hanging on most of the time when the WorldTour boys get it between their teeth”
“Then it’s road nationals and then you hit the national road series – GP of Wales will be a good, being a Welshman it will be nice to win on home soil so that will be one of my big targets.”
And with Mould clearly a man in form, should some of the country’s biggest stars be sitting up and taking note ahead of the National Championships? Mould doesn’t see why not after a tenth place finish in Lincoln last year.
“It’s always a tough one, the nationals – it’s just a smashfest really and you’re just hanging on most of the time when the WorldTour boys get it between their teeth,” he says.
“But there’s definitely a chance for any of the British riders just because of the way it’s raced.”
Whatever the second half of the season may hold, however, there is no question who the star of the first half of the domestic campaign has been.
