Tour of Britain 2014, Stage 2: Renshaw wins in Llandudno

8th September 2014

Mark Renshaw won the second stage of the Tour of Britain in Llandudno today. He was the team's lead sprinter, as Mark Cavendish was still recovering from hurting himself yesterday. 

Cavendish changed his cleats near the beginning of yesterday's stage, and as he was coming back to the peloton through the team cars, one of the vehicles slammed on its brakes to avoid a rider who had stopped for a puncture, and Cavendish went left into another car, hurting his left leg.

Stage 2 was 200km from Knowsley to Llandudno. A few kilometres from the finish, Michal Kwiatkowski (OPQ) attempted a solo break, but he was caught by the pack. Alex Dowsett was next to go, and Sylvain Chavanel got to him, before Bradley Wiggins brought the peloton back to them. Ben Swift (Team Sky) was the first sprinter to go for the win, but he was overhauled by Renshaw, who took the win, and the overall race lead. Swift was second.
