Maldon cyclist Alex Dowsett says he's "super excited" about the Tour of Britain time trial. Speaking before the stage he said he would have lots of friends there to watch him race.
The stage is taking place in his home county, which he describes as a "once in a career moment".
The Movistar rider will be hoping to put on a show having missed out on selection for the Tour de France. This could be one of the last outings for Dowsett with the Spanish teams and is switching to Katusha next season.
