Two riders disqualified from Tour of Britain for riding on pavement to attack from bunch

James Lowsley-Williams and Bryan Lewis thrown out of race

With the break established and the big teams spread across the front of the peloton to prevent any further attacks, James Lowsley Williams (Bike-Channel Canyon) and Bryan Lewis (Cylance Pro Cycling) jumped on to the pavement to move up the side of the pack and attack in an attempt to bridge across to the escape group.
