Tour of Great Britain
Stage 3: Jedburgh - Dumfries - Stage Details

Recap:

Leigh Howard pulled on the gold leader’s jersey at the Tour of Britain following stage three. The Australian sprinted to second on the stage behind Mark Cavendish (Sky Procycling). Aidis Kruopis, the last lead outman for Howard, rounded out the stage podium.

“It was a crazy finish,” said Sports Director Lionel Marie. “There was a lot of attacking in the end, and Aidis and Leigh did a really good job maintaining their position behind Sky. With the wet roads and the technical aspects in the finish, this stage was for a real sprinter.”
