A number of riders have abandoned - Dylan Van Baarle succumbed to injuries sustained in a bizarre post finish crash on stage 12. A race official timed his sprint past the photographers all wrong, and with an incredibly narrow finish, there was nowhere for stage winner Alexandre Geniez to go - the two collided heavily, but it was Van Baarle who would end up the worse off. Meanwhile over in Canada, the 9th editions of the Grand Prix’s of Quebec and Montreal were run on Friday and Sunday respectively. A brave effort by Pete Kennaugh in the former almost saw him pull off an upset, however, he was caught almost within sight of the line and so we had the expected reduced bunch sprint. Winning convincingly was Michael Matthews, clearly, fitter and fresher than the rest after an injury-hit season, and that much was evident two days later in Montreal - his team worked hard, he finished off the job, this time in a much closer battle with Sonny Colbrelli. The Tour of Britain reached its conclusion yesterday in London - the race had been shaped by the particularly tough team time trial which finished up the Whinlatter Pass, Lotto NL Jumbo winning the stage and putting Primoz Roglic into the race lead, but he faltered the following day on a stage which finished on the same climb - there, Julian Alaphilippe did enough in finishing 2nd to Wout Poels to propel himself into the leader’s jersey, which he would keep through Sherwood on stage 7 and through to the final in London.
