Bonneu sprints to victory in Sunderland on stage three of the Tour of Britain

All-day break of four holds off the bunch by a whisker, with the Sport Vlaanderen rider taking the spoils

Kamiel Bonneu won the day in Sunderland, sprinting out of the break of four that had survived all day in the rain. Corbin Strong (Israel-PremierTech) clung on to the leader's jersey by the skin of his teeth as Bonneu's fellow escapee Ben Perry (Wiv-Sungod) moved up into equal time with Strong.

The riders were treated to the worst the British weather could throw at them as they tackled the 163.6km outing from Durham to its North-East neighbour Sunderland, looping into the North Pennines and over three classified climbs as it went.
