• Viviani outfoxes Cavendish for Tour of Britain first stage win


    LONDON: Team Sky’s Elia Viviani won a dramatic sprint finish for the first stage of the Tour of Britain on Sunday (Monday in Manila) ahead of Britain’s Mark Cavendish. Cavendish looked set to win the sprint following the run from Beaumaris to Wrexham as he led Andre Greipel round the final bend. But Italian Viviani managed to sneak through to snatch victory ahead of Cavendish. The trio was among a main bunch who hauled in a four-rider breakaway with two kilometers remaining to set up the thrilling finish.
