Create: 09/09/2016 - 09:22
Bath hosted a stage finish of the Tour of Britain for the first time as the 2016 edition of the country's premier cycling race rolled into the West on a sunny September afternoon.
Jack Bauer of the Cannondale-Drapac team crossed the line first after spending the day, which began in Aberdare and took in South Wales and Gloucestershire, as part of a five-man breakaway group. Two of the others, Amael Moinard (BMC Racing) and Erick Rowsell (Madison-Genesis), were second and third as the sprinters behind them rapidly closed in as the finish line materialised on Royal Avenue. Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish were also among the field of 120 riders.
The yellow jersey for Stage 6 will be worn by Julien Vermote of Etixx-QuickStep, who finished in the peloton.
