Tour Of Britain 6: Joy and pain for Etixx-QS

Trentin won but Cavendish crashed into a parked car. Nothing brocken fortunately but he was forced to quit.

Matteo Trentin:


“When I saw him two kilometres from the finish and I thought he would close on me,” said Trentin. “When he arrived we had a good gap but everyone was on the limit because that was probably the hardest race we’d ever done. We went full gas from the start. I sat for a moment in his wheel and took a chance to breathe for the first time in 100 kilometres and then I just jumped past him and win.”
