After stunning the peloton to become the first-ever American stage winner at the Tour of Britain on Monday, today saw Robin Carpenter and the rest of our men’s team fight hard to try and retain the leader’s blue jersey.
Last off the ramp in Llandelio, Wales, the riders put in a gutsy ride that produced an 11th best time on the day. Their mark was beaten by stage winners Ineos Grenadiers, with their rider Ethan Hayter going into the blue of overall race leader.
Photographer Matt Grayson was there to capture the action.
Stage 4 of the Tour of Britain kicks off on Wednesday at 5:30 am EDT, with television pictures on GCN+ from 8 am EDT.
