Riding Around with Yellow ToB59
Unlike the Tour de France, there was no promenade around the streets of the capitol city of the Tour of Britain. With a group up the road, it fell to Team Dimension Data to ride tempo, not letting the escapees get to far away. So Mark Cavendish rode in behind the Yellow Jersey of Steve Cummings with the rest of the team on the front including, Johann Van Zyl, Jay Robert Thomson, Mark Renshaw, and Bernhard Eisel. It is reported that Cavendish has been ill for much of the Tour, but stayed in the race to help his teammate ensure Yellow on the final podium of the race.
