Tour of Britain. Good racing and a feel good moment.

It was an enjoyable 8 stages. Perhaps moreso (heresy!) not having a fantasy team in the fight. Some strong performances from some new-to-me names, some folks on the B teams bring their A game, and then WVA looking very much like the road world champion in waiting.

This may have been the moment that put another stake in the heart of the bidon disposal regulation:

WVA vs. Alaphilippe was a good show.
