0

LONDON: Team Sky’s Ian Stannard produced a dominant ride to sweep to victory in the Tour of Britain’s third stage on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). Stannard established himself among a small breakaway group soon after the race left Congleton and with 40 kilometers to go the Englishman surged to the finish line. The 29-year-old, who helped Chris Froome to his latest Tour de France triumph, finished almost two minutes clear of Graham Briggs of the JLT-Condor team and ONE Pro Cycling’s Kristian House. Belgium’s Julien Vermote, the winner of Monday’s second stage, retains the overall lead as Stannard lost more than 13 minutes to the Ettix-QuickStep rider in the Lake District.
