The final stage of the Tour of Britain saw Sir Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish, Nairo Quintana and other big names race ten times around a 8.8 km circuit of central London. Sky ensured that a break, including general classification contender Jack Bauer, couldn't get far enough ahead to challenge Wiggins' iron grip on the gold jersey. Led out superbly by Alessandro Petacchi, Cavendish won a bunch sprint.
