Tour of Britain: behind the scenes with Team Sky’s Luke Rowe

Team Sky’s Luke Rowe has had a Tour of Britain to remember.

The neo pro was drafted in as a last minute replacement for Thomas Löfkvist and responded by winning the opening stage when teammate, Mark Cavendish, crashed in the closing kilometres.

Rowe’s alliance with Cavendish bore fruit on stages three and four with victories for the world road race champion, and on yesterday’s queen stage, Rowe produced a strong performance on home roads to finish fifth.

The IG Markets film crew followed Rowe through his victorious opening stage, from hotel room to team bus.
