Race report
Hepburn, Lapeira, Brustenga, Bidard, Lafay, Gaze, Swift, Roosen, Jacobs, Hamilton, Dinham, Haller and Le Berre are the breakaway riders, but their lead never exceed 1 minute and they are caught inside the last 30 kilometres. Several attacks follow before it all comes back together on the small climb from Algate to Stirling in the finale lap.

When Yates launches an attack on the climb to the line Vine sticks to his wheel. As does O’Connor. The three distance what’s left of the field to 10 seconds.

O’Connor leads out the sprint and is overhauled by the other two. Vine winds it up, but Yates pips him on the line for the stage win. Vine won’t mind as he seals the GC win.
