The Tour of Britain came to a climax in our capital city of London, with a split stage day. A time trial in the morning of 8.8KM, which was likely to be the final deciding part of the race. Followed by a criterium in the afternoon around the same course of 88.8KM.
As it was just down the road from us, we went down to catch the end of the time trial and take in the criterium.
Bradley Wiggins managed to win the time trial but it was not enough to move up into the leader’s jersey, which Dylan van Baarle was able to retain leading into the Criterium.
The criterium was following the time trial a few hours later, so we checked out some more of the course.
The team buses were all parked up on Westminster Bridge.
The criterium was 10 laps of the same course used for the time trial around central London and was set to be raced at a frenetic pace.
The breakaway was caught with around 5KM to go.
We weren’t at the finish line but Mark Cavendish was pipped in the sprint by Marcel Kittle, it must be those gigantic thighs (not the ones above, his are even bigger)!
