Welshman Stevie Williams said that he was still ‘proud’ of his ride in the mountains of South Wales on stage eight of the Tour of Britain on Sunday, despite missing out on a stage victory in Caerphilly and a potential overall win.

The rider from Aberystwyth launched an attack with eventual stage winner Carlos Rodríguez (Ineos Grenadiers) on the slopes of the Bryn Du climb. The duo pushed on as they looked to put Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) and their other rivals under serious pressure in the fight for the overall title.
