- Norwegian wins sprint finish in Gloucester
- Van Aert maintains overall lead
Rasmus Tiller claimed victory in stage seven of the Tour of Britain after holding off competition from the Welsh rider Stephen Williams.
A reduced group sprint saw Tiller edge ahead of Danny van Poppel and Williams in Gloucester to win with a time of 3hr 50min 53sec.
Wout van Aert remains the overall leader going into Sunday’s final stage from Margam County Park to Caerphilly with a three-second advantage over van Poppel and Tiller.
Saturday’s 106.2-mile stage started around the Winchcombe Hill area before a lengthy ride through the valley. By the time of the final sprint, a shattered group had merged together but Van Aert attempted to catch the leading pack.
