Van Baarle wins Tour of Britain
LONDON (AP) — Dutch rider Dylan van Baarle won the Tour of Britain on Sunday, holding onto the lead despite a strong time trial by former champion Bradley Wiggins on a final day featuring two stages in central London.
Van Baarle, who rides for Garmin-Sharp, finished 10 seconds clear of Poland’s Michal Kwiatkowski. Wiggins was third, a further 12 seconds back.
Wiggins, the Tour de France and Olympic champion in 2012, moved up from seventh to third by winning the time trial in the morning’s next-to-last stage.
Van Baarle crossed the line in the peloton in the tour-ending Stage 8 won by Marcel Kittel in the afternoon.
