Ian Stannard's Tour of Britain stage-winning 'lunch ride' on Strava

British rider Ian Stannard's solo effort on stage three of the 2016 Tour of Britain netted him the victory, and he's uploaded it all to Strava

The effort that Ian Stannard (Sky) put in to win stage three of the 2016 Tour of Britain on Tuesday is clear to see on Strava, as the British rider has uploaded his ride.

Still modestly bearing the default name of 'Lunch ride', Stannard's 111-mile (179-kilometre) excursion from Congleton to Knutsford was achieved at an average speed of 26.2mph (42.2kmh) and included 5174 feet (1577 metres) of climbing.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
