"I possibly went under the radar a bit I was still I think 14th in GC but they don't know my name for now, and hopefully they will remember me."

Dylan van Baarle turned the Tour of Britain on its heads when he took the leader's jersey in today's stage. The Dutch neo-pro is convinced that he benefited from the fact that a lot of riders still don't know what he is capable of.

 


The drama continued in the Friends Life Tour of Britain as theYellow Jersey changed hands yet again, as the end of a thrilling stage to Brighton, won by Julien Vermote.


A trio of testing SKODA King of the Mountains climbs in the final 60-kilometres took their toll on the peloton, and Yellow Jersey Alex Dowsett in particular, with the Movistar Team rider losing 2 minutes 34 seconds and falling to tenth place overall.

Garmin Sharp's Dylan Van Baarle held on from the break to take third, behind Ignatas Konovalovas, but more importantly to become the sixth Friends Life Yellow Jersey of the week, taking a 19-second lead over Michal Kwiatowski into the final stage.
 

Speaking afterwards on his dramatic rise into the Yellow Jersey, Van Baarle said, "I possibly went under the radar a bit I was still I think 14th in GC but they don't know my name for now, and hopefully they will remember me.

"I'm really tired. It was a pretty hard day, we went almost from start to finish full gas and when I crossed the line i was completely dead. 

"I started to think we might do it when we had ten minutes in the break. Then some DS said there were only two Movistar guys riding and then we held the pace really high. Then Julien [Vermote] said he wasn't going to ride anymore because OPQS are chasing. At that moment me and Konovalovas went full gas to the finish line.

"Before the start of this race I knew that I wanted to show my name a little bit, show myself maybe get a top ten or top fifteen but I didn't expect to be wearing the yellow jersey. Now I'm thinking about the podium or maybe winning.

"I like the short prologue distances for time-trial. I'm not a Wiggins that needs 50km or whatever. I'm more a prologue specialist. I will do my best and we will see what happens tomorrow. I don't know how the legs will feel tomorrow for the other guys and it will be hard tomorrow."
