Tour of Britain 2014: British domestic riders who could make their mark

The men flying the flag for the home UCI Continental teams

King of the Mountains at the RideLondon-Surrey Classic, Steve Lampier has been no stranger to the breakaway at some of Britain’s biggest races this year.

He is also a strong overall contender, having enjoyed a career-best 17th overall last year – finishing in one of the front groups on Haytor in the process.

The former IG Sigma Sport man has proved his climbing potential this season and also showed well at the An Post Ras, where he finished sixth on stage six in Carrick on Suir.

His presence in the front group at the Beaumont Trophy, which included repeated climbs of the Ryals, suggests he will comfortably be able to mix it on the undulating stages on this year’s route too – perhaps even joining the breaks again.

If he can improve on last year’s showing on the race’s summit finish – Adam Yates and Jack Bauer were among those who finished alongside him – he will be in the mix for at least a good stage result, if not a top-ten overall.
