Tour of Britain
Stage 8: London - Stage Details

Multiple Tour Down Under stage winner Caleb Ewan sprinted brilliantly to victory on the eighth and final stage of the Tour of Britain today, blowing away the bunch to win by at least two clear bike lengths.

A breakaway of four was away for 90kilometres of the race before being caught with ten kilometres to go as the peloton began to organise itself for the sprint.

The 22-year-old was well positioned by his ORICA-BikeExchange teammates going into the finale and was able to maintain his speed after a blistering early acceleration.

“I am super happy,” said Ewan at the finish. “Its great to finally get the win after coming close a couple of times earlier in the race, it all worked out perfectly today.”
