Hunt supported BIKEChannel Canyon have had a successful start to their first Tour of Britain. Stage two brought on 211km with Rory Townsend taking turns in the seven man breakaway which lasted for over 190km! A special mention must be given to veteran team rider, Rob Partridge, who has achieved a record equalling 11 Tour of Britain starts showing the depth of talent in the young team. Hard-man Chris Opie has been affected by a minor crash but is still continuing on with the tour come Wednesday.
“I’ve got some tyre burn and some sore muscles but otherwise I’m good.
“It seems to be tradition. Every time Rob (Partridge) and I are team-mates, I crash on stage one in Scotland!”
