Barry Markus wanted to test himself against Marcel Kittel and MArk Cavendish in the final stage of the Tour of Britain. Teh Dutchman had found Kittel's wheel in the finale but had to settle for 11th.

 

Lars Petter Nordhaug ended the Tour of Britain on Sunday in 22nd overall. The Norwegian Belkin Pro Cycling TEAM cyclist started the day in 20th, but lost two spots in the morning time trial. Garmin-Sharp’s Dylan van Baarle secured the overall victory. 

Rick Flens was the best Belkin Pro Cycling TEAM rider in the 8.8-kilometre morning time trial through London. The Dutchman set the 27th best time. Sky’s Bradley Wiggins was 37 seconds faster and claimed the stage win. 
 

Marcel Kittel was the centre of attention in the final criterium. The German of team Giant-Shimano sprinted to the stage victory after 88 kilometres in London and Barry Markus was close to a top ten finish, placing 11th. 


“There was little to gain for us in the time trial, but in the final stage, we wanted to do something,” said Sports Director Jan Boven. “As a team we wanted Barry to start the sprint in the best possible position.” 

The team succeeded in its mission, Markus confirmed afterwards.

 

“I was at the front with the boys in the final two laps. In the last five kilometres, we had to be attentive because of a U-turn, which we were. Going into the penultimate corner, I was on Kittel’s wheel, but unfortunately, I lost it. Of course, I’m gutted by that.” 
 

“The results were not as hoped this week," said Boven. "We just weren’t good enough. Lars Petter was very good in Plouay, but during the first two days here, he was a little sick. We were behind after that. Luckily, he proved to be okay again yesterday, with a fifth place.”
