OVO Energy Tour of Britain

Sunday 3rd September 2017

Britain's Number One Cycle Race passed through Maxton today during Stage One from Edinburgh to Kelso.

Caleb Ewan sprinted to victory on the opening stage of the 2017 Tour of Britain, taking the overall leader's green jersey in the process.

The 23-year-old Australian Orica-Scott rider just edged out Dimension Data's Edvald Boasson Hagen on the line, with Team Sky's Elia Viviani in third.

Mark Cavendish, also Dimension Data, was competing for the first time since breaking his shoulder blade at the Tour de France in July. Obviously lacking race fitness, he lost seven and a half minutes on the 190km ride from Edinburgh to Kelso.
