Thursday race round-up

Tom Pidcock sprinted to a top 10 finish at the Tour of Britain as Wout van Aert won stage five solo to move into the race lead.

The Yorkshire rider finished ninth in a bunch sprint behind Van Aert, who had made a late attack off the front of the peloton, staying to clear to take a three second lead overall. 

Pidcock remains seventh overall with three stages remaining of the race, with Carlos Rodriguez, Magnus Sheffield and Ben Turner also on the same time. 


At the Vuelta a Espana, Kim Heiduk brought home the Grenadiers in 17th place, after stage 12 came down to a bunch sprint won by Sebastian Molano (UAE Team Emirates). 

Stage 13 sees a return to the mountains, with the Tourmalet summit finish looming large on a day that  features over 4660m of climbing.
