On Sunday, as a brief distraction from the preparation and build-up for the Big World Birding Adventure (BWBA), we managed to see the closing stages of the first day of this years Tour of Britain, as the race came through just south of Cawston, en route for the finish at the Norfolk Show Ground. The four man break-away was still clear of the peloton, with Sky leading the chase back. With 3k to go, having brought back the break away, Sky were in a commanding position and ready to launch the’Manx missile’, then disaster struck – a crash brought down Cav and most of the other serious sprint contenders! Sky still managed to pull off the win but it wasn’t the start we were all hoping for.
