Today’s eighth and final stage of Tour of Britain was a criterium over 86 kilometers with start and finish on Regent Street in London and the peloton passed iconic landmarks such as Piccadilly Circus, Pall Mall, Trafalger Square and Whitehall. Cult Energy Pro Cycling were focusing on retaining Rasmus Guldhammer's overall third position. But he held it by a thin thread with a single second to fourth overall, Owain Doull (Team Wiggins). Drama was in store.

 

In the first sprint, Cult Energy Pro Cycling’s Michael Carbel and Russell Downing tried to take the bonus seconds but Owain Doull managed to get in between the two Cult Energy riders to take two seconds and then the Team Wiggins rider was virtually third overall and Guldhammer fourth.

 

Unfortunately, a group of 8 riders then took off and swept up all bonus seconds, which left Guldhammer two seconds away from the podium. In the bunch, Team Sky, MTN-Qhubeka and Lotto-Soudal took the reigns of the pack and on the 13th and penultimate lap, they reeled in the final escapee Danilo Wyss (BMC).

 

In the expected bunch sprint, André Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) was first across the finish line but he was relegated for deviating from his line so the stage win went to Elia Viviani (Sky).

 

Cult Energy Pro Cycling’s Rasmus Guldhammer had to settle with 4th overall.  DS Luke Roberts says:

 

“Basically, Rasmus' podium position was lost in the first bonus sprint where Owain Doull finished second behind Russell Downing taking the two seconds he needed to pass Rasmus in the GC. From then on, the breakaway swept up the remaining bonus seconds on the road and naturally, we're gutted to see the podium slip away from underneath us. Rasmus has been performing beautifully all week and he truly deserved that spot on the podium. However, he's had a very good season and he has a lot of good results to be looking forward to in the seasons to come."
