Sidmouth Tour of Britain Stage 6

Thousands of people gathered on Sidmouth seafront on Friday as stage six of the Tour of Britain set off en route to Haytor on Dartmoor. Resplendent in the leader’s yellow jersey Sir Bradley Wiggins was among the first riders to head along the front then up Fore Street and on out through Sidmouth, cheered on by crowds waving their Devon county flags. The stage was started by County Councillor Stuart Hughes who waved a huge Devon flag dressed in his Union flag suit.
