Tour of Britain
Stage 7b: Bristol - Stage Details

The penultimate day of the Tour of Britain was split in two with a morning 14.2kilometre individual time trial followed by a short, fast 90kilometre circuit race in the afternoon.

In the afternoon, Luka Mezgec sprinted into seventh place after a late attack by Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing Team) denied the peloton of much wanted sprint finish taking the stage victory for BMC.

“The race today was a bit disappointing for us,” explained sport director Matt Wilson. "We tried to control the race and we weren’t quite sure whether it would be a bunch sprint or not. We knew we would be on the limit over the final climb.”
