United Kingdom: Mark Cavendish after 9 years

Mark Cavendish (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) won the UK Championships title in Castle Douglas, Scotland. At the end of 201 kilometres, he is ahead in the sprint of 3 Sam Watson (Grupma-FDJ) and Alexander Richardson (Le Col).

All three were part of a leading group throughout the day. But Turner, Cavendish, Bostock, Richardson and Watson were out and managed to take a good lead.

At 22 kilometres, Bostock falls and allows the quartet to slip towards the finish, followed by a minute at the start of the last lap. At 10 kilometres, it was Ben Turner who tried his luck but Mark Cavendish, Sam Watson and Alexander Richardson jumped at his wheel. Turner, exhausted, will eventually pass out.

It is then in the sprint that the victory will be decided. Watson and Richardson both launch sprints from far away to avoid the return of the Cavs but will have nothing to do. Mark Cavendish joins them and wins the UK Championship.
