Winn sure of mountains prize

Welsh rider Julian Winn is, barring illness or accident, certain to take the mountains jersey in London tomorrow. Although he was not in yesterday's break, the four riders in front mopped up all the available points, thus preserving his six point advantage over South African road race champion and Tour de Langkawi winner Ryan Cox (Barloworld Valsir).

With today's stage being a flat time trial and tomorrow's a circuit race in Whitehall, there are no more KOH points up for grabs. So, providing he finishes safely, Winn will add the Tour of Britain KOH title to those he won in the FBD Milk Rás, the Tour of Rhodes, the Commonwealth Bank classic and the Tour of Guadeloupe. He was due to retire shortly after this year's race and take up a coaching position with the Welsh cycling federation, but will now continue until the Commonwealth Games in March 2006.
