A day with Wiggins and co


It was the first time in seven years the Tour Of Britain had travelled through Nottingham.

About 100 riders, including Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins, set out from Nottingham Castle then cycled through the Old Market Square and Wollaton Park. The race stage then started at Trowell Road, near the M1, before climbing into Derbyshire and the Peak District.

Australia’s Leigh Howard outsprinted Mark Cavendish to win the stage as it ended in Cheshire.
