Was it you? Was it me? The quizzical looks Jake Stewart (Great Britain) and Cees Bol (Team DSM) gave each other as they flew across the finish line of the Tour of Britain's stage two in Duns, Scotland, suggested only a photo finish could decide the result. In the end the camera gave the win to the Dutch rider by the smallest of margins. 

The finish of the 175km stage, which began in Hawick, came down to a big bunch sprint against all the odds, having spent the final 30km exploding left, right and centre over a triple whammy of classified climbs.
