Caleb Ewan wins opening stage of OVO Energy Tour of Britain

Caleb Ewan started the 2017 OVO Energy Tour of Britain off where he ended the previous edition, standing atop the podium as a stage winner, having taken the victory at the end of the 190-kilometre opening leg between Edinburgh and Kelso in the Scottish Borders.

The 23-year-old Australian rounded out the 2016 edition with the stage win in London, and starts this year’s edition with victory on day one in Kelso’s Market Square, and with it the first OVO Energy Green Jersey of the race, plus the Wiggle Points Jersey.

Ewan outsprinted Edvald Boasson Hagen, Elia Viviani and Alexander Kristoff in a blanket finish across the first four riders.

When I crossed the line I was pretty confident that I got it”, said Ewan speaking afterwards.  “I know it was pretty close, but I thought I had got it. Then I saw all the cameras go around Eddy and I thought hang on a minute. When it is that close you just don’t know, and I saw Viviani as well round the outside. I was definitely happy to learn that I had won.

It was a pretty tricky finish, because of that tight corner, and obviously the cobblestones at the finish. We definitely wanted to be in front when the cobbles started. Luka had to get me out in front with about 200m to go. Because of the six men teams, you can’t go too early, because you will just run out of guys.

The boys did very well, I can’t complain about the lead out. I just had to sit there and get taken through the tricky parts.

The stage win and time bonus gives Ewan a three-second lead over Boasson Hagen – who picked up one-second at the day’s final intermediate Eisberg Sprint in Melrose – with ONE Pro Cycling’s Karol Domagalski a further second behind.

The Pole had been part of an eight-rider break – surviving a brush with the Madison Genesis team car – before striking out with compatriot Lukasz Oswain as the break were reeled in.  The pair were caught at the foot of the final SKODA King of the Mountains climb of the Eildon Hills, but Domagalski had done enough to claim the Eisberg Sprints Jersey, with Oswain taking the SKODA King of the Mountains jersey after Stage One.

With 120 riders confirmed for this years eight stage race. The OVO Energy Tour of Britain gets underway in Edinburgh, Scotland tomorrow morning at 1030am before meandering down the East-Side of the country and concluding in Cardiff, Wales on Sunday 10th September.

Beamed Live on ITV4 television for the first time with an estimated audience of eight-million, the highlights package later in the evening will be broadcast to a 125 countries.

Mark Cavendish, Dimension Data, Dan Martin of Quickstep Floors and Geraint Thomas of Team Sky are all still recovering from injuries and realistic about their race prospects.

To have Tyler, Dan, Mark, Geraint, Alex and Caleb here at the Press Conference for me is thrilling. I don’t think we have had such a stellar line up. We have three former World Champions, Six Olympians, Twenty-four stage winner from Grand Tours and countless World, European and National Champions and I’m absolutely delighted.

Mick Bennett

Race Director, Tour of Britain

I have to be realistic, I’m not a machine. I’m not looking for any results here. Team Dimension Data can get results here.

I’m a long-time supporter of the Tour of Britain and as a massive fan of the British fans, the support we have here – to see it grow over the last – more than a decade doing this, is phenomenal.

I had to miss RideLondon because of my injuries. To get here and race at home is  always’s something special. So I wanted to at least try, come out, experience and absorb the atmosphere that’s around the Tour of Britain nowerdays.

Mark Cavendish

Rider, Team Dimension Data

I’ve been back on the bike a couple of weeks now. Just looking forward to the race now – Cav was saying – the crowds and stuff are just unbelievable these days, to see how far it’s come.

The first time I did it was with Cav back in 2005, so yeh, it’s a bit different today.

We’ve got Viviani (Elia) for the Sprints – there’s a lot of Sprinters here, so yeh, It should be exciting.

Geraint Thomas

Rider, Team Sky

I feel fine, I feel good. I had to lay off after the Tour. I’ve only been back on the bike two-and-half to three weeks now, getting going again.

I’ve got a really strong Team here. I don’t know where I’ll be as far as ambitions. The course is really flat this year. As far as the Teams ambitions go, we can be optimistic, aim high and I’ll be part of that.

Dan Martin

Rider, Quickstep Floors

There are a lot of Sprinters and Time Trialists here at the Tour of Britain.

The Time Trial on stage 5 is definitely an objective for both myself an Ryan Mullen who’s been targeting this race for a while. For me presonnally, it’s one of my favourite races on the calendar, so I always look forward to coming to the Tour of Britain.

Taylor Phinney

Rider, Cannondale- Drapac

I think my form is all right. It’s been a long season up and till now. I started early in Australia. I’ve had a good break and a really good year, hopefully my form has come on well for this race.

Caleb Ewan

Winner in London 2016, Orica-Scott

The Time Trial roads you must know quite well? “ Yeh, it’s close to home. I’ll have lots of friends and family out, which will be good. I went and looked at the course the other week. It’s nice, a good one for me.

Alex Dowsett

Rider, Movistar Team

Where to catch OVO Energy Tour of Britain in Scotland

On Sunday 3 September, the streets of Scotland will be abuzz as 20 of the world’s top professional cycling teams take to the roads for the opening stage of the 2017 OVO Energy Tour of Britain, from Edinburgh to Kelso.

Among the top names already confirmed for the race are Team Sky duo Geraint Thomas and Michal Kwiatkowski, recently crowned European Champion Alexander Kristoff from Norway, World Time Trial Champion Tony Martin and multiple British Champion Alex Dowsett.

With just one week to go until the start of the 188-kilometre stage of Britain’s national Tour, we’ve compiled a list of the best vantage points to catch the world’s top riders in action in Scotland.

Stage One starts from outside St Giles Cathedral on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile at 10:30, with spectators advised to arrive for 9:00 as teams begin to arrive and sign-on, with each of the 20 world-class teams being presented to the crowd on the podium.

In addition to promo stands from Tour partners OVO Energy, Oakley and Dare2b all of the team vehicles will be parked on High Street and Cockburn Street ahead of the Grand Depart.

With Stage One using the same loop of roads in the city as the HSBC UK City Ride afterwards, the Meadows will be another great location to watch and see the action twice, especially if you’re riding in the freeride event afterwards.

Spectators are in for an amazing opening stage to this year’s OVO Energy Tour of Britain as they are treated to world-class racing set against the backdrop of some of Scotland’s most iconic and spectacular locations and countryside.

EventScotland is proud to be a long-term partner of the Tour of Britain and help bring the race back to Scotland each year to showcase what’s on offer to an international audience of cycling enthusiast. With more than 2000 miles of the National Cycle Network covering the country, Scotland truly is the perfect stage for cycling events.

Paul Bush OBE

Director of Events, VisitScotland

A further spectacular location, sure to feature prominently in the live television coverage on ITV4 is Duddington Low Road through Holyrood Park, with the famous backdrop of Arthur’s Seat.

The East Lothian towns and villages of Musselburgh, Cockenzie and Port Seton, Longniddry, Haddington and Pencaitland all lie on the opening kilometres of the route, while Gifford hosts the first intermediate Eisberg Sprint of the 2017 race at around 11:50, sponsored by leading alcohol free wine brand Eisberg, where riders will battle for points towards the Eisberg Sprints Jersey.

Shortly after riders tackle the first SKODA King of the Mountains climb of the race at Redstone Rigg in the Lammermuir Hills, with the race expected to reach the summit at around midday.

Fans in the Scottish Borders are spoilt for choice on where to watch, with the Tour racing through Duns (approximately 12:30) and Coldstream, where there will be another Eisberg Sprint (approximately 13:00) before passing through the centre of Kelso twice, at around 13:30 and again for the finish at approximately 15:20.

As well as a big screen showing the whole race live, Kelso will host the official promo zone with stands from Tour partners and a static bike challenge.

With the race taking in a 79-kilometre loop of the Scottish Borders, there is also the chance for fans to watch at one of the SKODA King of the Mountains climbs in the beautiful locations of Scott’s View (approximately 14:30) or above Melrose near the Eildon Hills (approximately 14:45). The latter comes just after the final Eisberg Sprint in Melrose High Street.

From the world famous city centre of Edinburgh, via the coast and moors of East Lothian to the beautiful views and towns of the Scottish Borders, Stage One has a bit of everything.

“With our partners we have planned a very spectator friendly route and look forward to cycling fans from across Scotland and the North of England turning out to cheer on and support the amazing field of riders we will have.

Mick Bennett

Race Director, OVO Energy Tour of Britain

HSBC-UK Woman’s National Road Series 2017 | Ryedale Grand Prix

HSBC-UK Woman’s National Road Series 2017 | Ryedale Grand Prix

Massey wins the final HSBC-UK National Women’s Road Series event, the Ryedale Grand Prix.

Laura Massey, Drops Pro Cycling powered up-to the finish line in the grounds of Ampleforth Abbey and College just ahead of Alice Sharpe, NCC Group-Kuota-Torelli and the overall Series Winner Lizzy Banks, Storey Racing in a thrilling climax to the ninth and final round in the Road Series.

Sixty-one riders took the start-line in the 2017 edition of the Ryedale GP, one of the toughest courses in the calendar.

Missing from the start list was second place in the Series, Melissa Lowther, Team Breeze who was away racing in Europe prior to today’s race, and Banks only rival close enough to steal her glory.

Massey had started a little further back, but moved up into second after today’s win and furthermore securing the Team classification for Drops Pro Cycling at the same time.

The first and only real move of the day came on the second lap of the big circuit when Steph Mottram, NCC Group-Kuota-Torelli went clear on the climb to Yearsley and quickly established a thirty-five second lead.

With no reaction from the peloton, Mottram found herself out-front and alone with her lead extending every pedal stroke and by the thirty-six kilometre marker had extended to fifty seconds.

Starting the first of the smaller laps, Mottram’s lead had grown to one-forty-two reaching the fifty-kilometer-marker out of ninety-four-point-one kilometre race.

The gap remained around the one-thirty mark for the second small circuit before the signs of small attacks began and the peloton split with seventeen riders breaking free including the usual favourites’ and four members of Storey Racing.

Mottram took the bell with her lead diminishing and Chanel Mason, Storey Racing whom had held the Series lead at one point clipped off the front briefly.

With only five kilometres remaining it was the end of Mottram’s lead being caught on the final climb, opening up the opportunity for one of the chasing bunch to claim the race win, and as they sped towards the drag up towards the Abbey only the strongest rider would seal the victory.

“The girl was off the front and she was really going well, she had two minutes at one point. But it was windy out there and five laps it’s going to take its toll.

I think the peloton was being fairly patient, her team doing some of the work.”

“It got a bit frisky on that last lap, there were a few attacks, but I just followed their wheel and then the uphill-kick. I can do that”.

Laura Massey

Race Winner, Drops Pro Cycling

CS: Steph spent most of the race out front, alone.

“I needed an extra 7K didn’t I”.

“I was only moving out of the way for the motorbike on the hill, and then I had a gap. I thought well… I might as well have a go. You just push, don’t you”.

“When I came to the last lap, I thought if I can get up the hill with everything going on, I thought I would be able to hold it.”

“I was hoping at one point (That someone would come across) especially after the first big lap and I had a minute. I was hoping one or two might come join me”.

“This time last year I would of never of managed that”

Steph Mottram

Rider, NCC Group-Kuota-Torelli

CS: Beginning the season you won the Tour of the Wolds. Did you think, come the end of the season you would be here and now wearing the leader’s jersey?

“Once I’d won that it was a real incentive going into the second round, you have the leaders jersey, so be as consistent at as possible – which is something I always aim to do”.

“Then once I had the jersey, I had my eyes on the prize!

It would have been really nice to take the win here today, but Laura was too strong and she played the perfect race. She was on her own, she’s a nice sprinter – credit to her – I was really pleased to get on the podium today in third. A good day’s work all-in-all.”

CS: You switched teams since beginning the season, the support from Storey must really have helped a lot.

“Yeh, absolutely. Just from the first race – the amount I learnt immediately was absolutely amazing. What about thinking about this, about this, (as the team rallied around) and about this? 

Yeh, having the support of the team mates, they are such a strong group of girls and really, really lovely group of girls – and it’s just nice to be part of that. Sarah and Barney just ouse knowledge and yeh, it’s brilliant!”

Interview – Laura Massey Rydale GP 2017 Winner by Cycling Shorts

Laura Massey of Drops Cycling chats to Chris Maher of CyclingShorts.cc after her win at the 2017 Ryedale Grand Prix.

CS: How tough is that final uphill kick to the finish line?

“It’s horrible cos you can see it, and its 300 meters, 250 meters and you have been going for ages! How is it still 200 meters to go? But yeh, it’s hard.” 

Knowing when to go, obviously everyone’s also dying behind you- you have to stay out of the wind”.

“I was sad for her (Steph) when she got caught, I felt I needed to carry on and do something”.

“I was very pleased with my second place result”.
