Great day for the Brits in Corsica

Sunday was a great day for British cycling at the Criterium International in Corsica. Unless it’s Mark Cavendish road wins are a rare thing, but two in one day is unheard of!

Russell Downing won the criterium stage in the morning. This was actually the first win for a British rider on Team Sky! Downing sealed his Sky contract after his win last year in the Tour of Ireland proved he could compete with Pro Tour calibre riders.

David Millar then beat some big names in the TT in the afternoon including a motvated Alberto Contador and Michael Rogers.

Pierrick Fedrigo clinched the overall after surprising the favorites on the opening mountain stage. The big shock was Contador getting dropped, apparently suffering from allergies.
