Davies Delight As He Finishes Top Brit

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.”
