The final sprint!


Edvald Boasson Hagen comfortably sealed overall victory in The Tour of Britain, as Italian Michele Merlo sprinted to victory in an action packed stage in front of thousands of spectators in central London. Boasson Hagen crossed the line safely in the peloton to confirm victory; only his second overall win in a stage race.

Ben Swift takes first professional victory

Ben Swift took a hugely popular first professional win in Yeovil, to break the Edvald Boasson Hagen deadlock and to become the first British stage winner in The Tour of Britain since Paul Manning in 2007.

The Katusha rider sprinted to victory ahead of teammate Filippo Pozzato, with Bikeability Yellow Jersey Edvald Boasson Hagen in third, who extended his lead over Rabobank’s Kai Reus to 23 seconds, while also retained The Prostate Cancer Charity Points Jersey.

“It’s really special”, said an ecstatic Swift afterwards, “I’ve come into the race with aims for general classification, but I’ve had bad luck on the second, third and fourth stages, then yesterday I had a good long hard day out in the break. As soon as I was eliminated from the GC then I was going for stage wins.

“This is the first time I’ve been able to finish it off, the team’s rode for me quite a few times now and I’ve never quite finished it off, so to pull it off in Britain is quite good!”
