    My comment about the teams (second sentence) was in reference to the Tour Down Under. Oh and Orica Greenedge did not ride the Tour of Britain 😉

  • Mark Jones

    This is why the Tour of Britain should not attempt to reach World Tour level. No teams outside of the top level, apart from one Australian team. The most exciting thing about the Tour of Britain is seeing the likes of Simon Yates and Owain Doull up there competing with top riders. Long may this continue.
