The 2014 Tour of Britain came to an end with a split stage in London, where Sir Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky) and Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) won on the day, and Dylan van Baarle (Garmin-Sharp) secured overall victory. Wiggins, riding his first time trial since being crowned national champion for the third time, romped to victory on the 8.8km course ahead of Sylvain Chavanel (IAM Cycling) and Steve Cummings (BMC Racing). Kittel then took centre stage, beating Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) and Nicola Ruffoni (Bardiani-CSF) to the line in a bunch sprint at the end of an 88.8km circuit race. These photos tell the story of the final day of the race.
Hansen’s heroics win the day, foiling the sprinters in the finale, attacking to win alone in Cangas do Morrazo. The Australian strongman is rewarded for his guile and guts, riding to his second grand tour stage win in the Vuelta’s stage 19
