2013 Tour of Britain: Epsom to Guildford, 150.4km - Guildford sprint double for Mark Cavendish in The Tour of Britain.


Mark Cavendish sprinted to victory in Guildford to win the Surrey stage of The Tour of Britain for the second successive year.  The Omega Pharma Quick-Step rider enjoyed a perfect leadout from teammate Alessandro Petacchi to surge clear of his rivals at the foot of Guildford's cobbled, uphill High Street.

Behind the Manxman came two fellow Tour of Britain stage winners from the 2013 race, Elia Viviani (Drumlanrig Castle) and Gerald Ciolek (MTN Qhubeka), with race leader Sir Bradley Wiggins finishing 15th and losing six seconds of his overnight lead.

Wiggins remains 26 seconds clear of Martin Elmiger who finished in the front group of 12 riders, with Simon Yates staying third overall going into the final day's London stage.
