Colin Joyce sprinted to fourth place on the Aberdeen Esplanade, just narrowly missing a podium packed with sprint royalty.
The 2019 Rutland – Melton Cicle Classic winner brought his Tour of Britain debut to an impressive end, after tasting disappointment on stage 6.
The sprint came after a Robin Carpenter-led breakaway was caught just five zkm from the line. Despite suffering through the day, Carpenter found a little extra energy to salute the huge crowds on the Cairn o’Mount KOM.
“The fans were just crazy and I was trying to hype them up. That was the best part of the day.”
Joyce summed up the team’s time in Britain.
