Tour of Britain: Thwaites eighth in stage four sprint finish
8:58pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in Sport
Mark Cavendish won stage four of the Tour of Britain, with fellow Briton Sir Bradley Wiggins remaining top of the general classification.
The Omega Pharma-Quickstep rider triumphed in a bunch sprint at the end of a challenging day that took the race from Stoke-on-Trent to Llanberis.
An 11-strong breakaway had operated out on its own for most of the day but was reeled in with just one kilometre remaining in the Snowdonia National Park.
Burley-in-Wharfedale’s Scott Thwaites enjoyed a fine sprint to come home eighth, Keighley’s Tom Moses finished in the peloton in 65th but Pool’s Josh Edmondson was 5min 39sec down on the main group in 96th place out of the 102 finishers.
