Scott Davies admits he is delighted with his Tour of Britain showing as he finished the race as top Brit.
The Carmarthenshire rider was 12th overall – one minute 54 seconds down on winner Julian Alaphilippe after Sunday’s eighth and final stage.
Davies also led the King of the Mountains classification for a couple of days eventually finishing sixth as Team Dimension Data team-mate Nic Dlamini took the black jersey.
The 23-year-old said: “It has been a great week with the King of the Mountains jersey and myself being able to finish 12th in the GC.
“It’s been a really good week for us. We raced aggressively and we are happy with it.
“For me personally, I am really happy with my performance. It’s been a tough year and I have struggled at times, so it’s nice for things to come together here, at the Tour of Britain.”
Wales’ Tour de France champ Geraint Thomas, who has just signed a new deal to stay at Team Sky until 2021, was 36th overall (+9:12)
Stevie Williams was 37th (+9:42) riding for the British team with Jon Mould 97th (+38:02) riding for JLT Condor.
