Cav Nails Stage Seven in Tour of Britain
24 Sep, 2013

Mark Cavendish sprinted to victory in Guildford to win the Surrey stage of The Tour of Britain for the second successive year.  The Omega Pharma Quick-Step rider enjoyed a perfect leadout from teammate Alessandro Petacchi to surge clear of his rivals at the foot of Guildford's cobbled, uphill High Street.

Behind the Manxman came two fellow Tour of Britain stage winners from the 2013 race, Elia Viviani (Drumlanrig Castle) and Gerald Ciolek (MTN Qhubeka), with race leader Sir Bradley Wiggins finishing 15th and losing six seconds of his overnight lead.

Wiggins remains 26 seconds clear of Martin Elmiger who finished in the front group of 12 riders, with Simon Yates staying third overall going into the final day's London stage.

Stage Eight the London Stage presented by TfL gets underway at 15:30 and is a ten lap race around the 8.8km kilometre circuit at the heart of the capital.

Ahead of Stage Eight is the Johnson Health Tech Westminster Grand Prix at 10:30, with a 79-rider field of Britain's top domestic female racers, led by MG Maxifuel's Hannah Barnes and including the Matrix Fitness Race Academy team.

Live coverage of the final stage of The Tour of Britain is on ITV4 and British Eurosport from 16:00 with highlights exclusively on ITV4 at 21:00.
