London finale plays out in front of huge crowds

Mark CavendishMark Cavendish finished off the Tour of Britain in style today, powering home for his third stage win out of the eight day race. The Omega Pharma Quick Step rider hit the line first on the streets of London, with the 22 year old Irish continental team rider Sam Bennett (An Post Chainreaction Sean Kelly) finishing on his wheel, notching up another strong result.

Cannondale rider Elia Viviani was third and Matteo Pelucchi (IAM Cycling) was fourth.

Overnight leader Bradley Wiggins (Sky), who held a comfortable 26 second lead over Martin Elmiger (IAM Cycling) heading into the stage, had no moments of concern and finishing in the main bunch, winning the race.

“I'm really happy and proud,” said a happy Cavendish afterwards. “It's always nice to win here in front of my British supporters. The stage was as we expected it to be. The race was really fast. We had support of other teams to control and we took things into our hands in the last laps. Once again the team was super strong.”

The stage was marked by a six man break comprising Movistar’s Angel Madrazo, IG Sigma Sport’s Pete Williams, Garmin-Sharp’s Jack Bauer, Shane Archbold (An Post Chainreaction Sean Kelly), NetApp Endura’s Andreas Schillinger and Sergio Pardilla of the MTN-Qhubeka.

These opened a lead of 46 seconds but were unable to pull further ahead. Wiggins’ Sky team worked hard to limit the move, knowing that fifth place Pardilla and sixth placed Bauer were amongst the six.

After it and a subsequent move by Alex Dowsett (Movistar) was brought back, Cavendish’ team hit the front and set him up for the sprint.

He thanked them afterwards. “Martin Velits and Julien Vermote worked hard as usual. Michal Golas and Iljo Keisse did a great job in the last kilometers. The lead out was also perfect once again. Petacchi also led me really well. He always stays calm and waits for the right moment. He went super fast into the second to last corner and then he led me well into the final corner,” he said. “I only had to worry about my sprint.”

Wiggins won the race for the first time, and was very happy with the result.

“At the moment it’s just relief that the job’s done,” he said after the finish, talking about his initial feelings. “From the minute you’ve won the time trial you believe you can win the GC, but it’s not over until you’ve crossed that line. “[The lead] was only 26 seconds, so if you crash before 3km to go, and all those other little things to think about. It was a pretty hectic finish as everyone wants to win the last stage.”

He said that winning in front of the home crowd was part of his enjoyment of the experience. “You can’t fail to hear the crowd. It’s a bit like the Olympics,” he said. “I expected it as every year the race finishes in London it’s been fantastic. It was the same today.”

How it played out:

The final stage of the Tour of Britain took place in London’s Whitehall area, with 97 riders signing in for the laps of the 8.8 kilometre circuit.

While the GC was looking likely to go to Bradley Wiggins (Sky) due to his 26 second overnight lead over Martin Elmiger (IAM Cycling), there was still plenty to race for. The stage win was an obvious carrot for the bunch, while the Yodel Direct sprint still needed to be settled. Movistar’s Angel Madrazo started the stage with thirty points, while IG Sigma Sport’s Pete Williams was five points back and determined to try to seize the jersey.

Willams got things off to a good start when he won the first sprint ahead of Garmin-Sharp’s Jack Bauer and Madrazo, reducing his deficit to just two points.

Very soon afterwards those three riders clipped away with Shane Archbold (An Post Chainreaction Sean Kelly), NetApp Endura’s Andreas Schillinger and Sergio Pardilla of the MTN-Qhubeka team. Madrazo and Williams were intent on fighting it out in the subsequent intermediate sprints, while Pardilla and Bauer were scrapping out out for fifth overall. They had been separated by just three seconds this morning, making those sprints crucial.

The sextet built a lead of 46 seconds, which had dropped to 37 seconds with fifty kilometres to go. Bauer won the next intermediate sprint at the end of lap six, with Williams finishing ahead of Madrazo and thus narrowing his gap to one point. However he pushed the Movistar rider in the buildup to the sprint, raising a question mark about the outcome.

Archbold and Schillinger seized the opportunity when those who disputed the sprint paused, making the most of the lull to eke out a lead. The others were reeled in very soon afterwards.

The two leaders had a seventeen second advantage with just under thirty kilometres to go, but this was down to nine seconds the next time over the line. Archbold pushed on ahead alone but he and Schillinger were both scooped up, bringing everything together with 22 kilometres left.

The final Yodel sprint came soon afterwards and it appeared this would be the decider for the jersey. Yates was best there, beating Alex Dowsett (Movistar) and Williams, who appeared to win the competition with his third place. However the judges had raised an objection to his pushing of Madrazo in the previous sprint and, once the race was over, he was told that he had lost those points.

As a result Madrazo would win the competition, plus the mountains prize.

Soon afterwards, Dowsett attacked with approximately seventeen kilometres to go and opened a solid gap. However the bunch was in no mood to give any chances and he was caught with 9.7 kilometres remaining.

Wiggins’ Sky team continued to drive the pace at the front, thus saving energy for Mark Cavendish’s Omega Pharma Quick Step team. There was plenty of fighting for position heading into the final three kilometres, with Team UK Youth taking over with Cannondale close by.

The An Post Chainreaction Sean Kelly team were also prominent, hoping to help stage five winner Sam Bennett to more success.

Omega Pharma Quick Step were lurking, though, and they moved to the front very soon afterwards. Alessandro Petacchi led out Cavendish, easing back slightly when his acceleration gapped the rider he was supporting, then opened up the sprint.

The Manxman then flew by and went flat out to the line. Bennett was in his slipstream and tried to come around, but he couldn’t deny the Omega Pharma Quick Step rider his third stage of the race. The 22 year old finished second, boosting his push for a pro contract, while Elia Viviani (Cannondale) picked up third.

Wiggins rolled in as part of the main bunch, sealing his first overall victory in the race. In doing so he gave himself a morale boost in advance of next week’s world time trial championship, where he will go up against defending champion Tony Martin (Omega Pharma Quick Step), multiple winner Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack Leopard) and Taylor Phinney (BMC Racing Team).
