It was an exciting day as Rapha-Condor-Sharp’s Dean Downing walked away with the orange jersey of Halfords Tour leader. Another highlight was at the first Boardman Bikes sprint race where Team Raleigh’s Liam Holohan was the victor.

The race began with numerous attacks before the peloton swallowed them back. As the finish drew near, come the final laps, there was a lot of aggressive action coming from teams on the lead.

London’s Docklands was a witness to Gibb’s victorious sprint against Motorpoint-Marshalls Pasta’s Malcolm Elliott.

The next stop for the Halford’s Tour will be in Durham on May 27.
