Jonathan White, Wistaston
The ‘Tour of Britain’ cycle race (Stage 3, http://cheshiretourofbritain.co.uk/) passed through Crewe, Wistaston, Willaston and Nantwich on Tuesday 6th September 2016.
The stage followed a course from Congleton to Tatton Park in Knutsford over a distance of 111.6 miles. It is the only stage in this year's race that is held entirely within one county’s borders.
This year’s race includes Sir Bradley Wiggins (Tour de France winner, Olympic multiple gold medallist) and Mark Cavendish (Tour de France points winner, Olympic silver medallist).
The stage was won by English-man Ian Stannard from Team Sky, who helped Chris Froome to victory at this year's Tour de France and was then part of Team GB's road squad at last month's Rio Olympics.
