A Brit has won the Tour of Britain


Steve Cummings won the Tour of Britain as he safely negotiated the final stage in London.

It is only the second time a Briton has won the event since its 2004 rebrand, after Sir Bradley Wiggins in 2013.

Dimension Data rider Cummings finished in the main bunch as Australian Caleb Ewan won the sprint at Piccadilly Circus to end the 16-lap 100km course.

Australia’s Rohan Dennis was second overall, 26 seconds behind, with Dutchman Tom Dumoulin third.

Cummings, 35, was runner-up in 2008 and 2011. He took the overall lead in this year’s race by finishing eighth on stage six of the eight-day race and held on to it despite losing time on the penultimate day.
