OVO Tour of Britain Came to Kelso

OVO Energy Tour of Britain Stage One - Edinburgh to Kelso

Caleb Ewan sprinted to victory on the opening stage of the 2017 Tour of Britain, taking the overall leader's green jersey in the process.

The 23-year-old Australian Orica-Scott rider just edged out Dimension Data's Edvald Boasson Hagen on the line, with Team Sky's Elia Viviani in third.

Mark Cavendish, also Dimension Data, was competing for the first time since breaking his shoulder blade at the Tour de France in July. Obviously lacking race fitness, he lost seven and a half minutes on the 190km ride from Edinburgh to Kelso.
