Harrogate, Saturday April 29th 2017 – Nacer Bouhanni thundered to a prestigious victory in Harrogate, raising his arms on the same finishing straight where Marcel Kittel prevailed in the 2014 Tour de France. The French rider edged Caleb Ewan and Jonathan Hivert in the sprint. Ewan, meanwhile, took over the blue leader’s jersey from Groenewegen.

The conclusion of today’s stage was hard and steep. Here in Yorkshire it seems like all the roads are hilly! Yesterday I watched the finish of the 2014 Tour de France stage here when Marcel Kittel won and that allowed me to better understand today’s sprint. I produced my effort with 400m to go and when Jonathan Hivert kicked I knew I had to react immediately. This is my fourth win of the season and it gives me confidence because the Tour de Yorkshire is my first race after a brief break. There were so many people on the road today it felt like the Tour de France.
