Sir Bradley Wiggins produced a dominant performance to win the Tour of Britain time trial and go top of the general classification.
The Team Sky rider clocked 19 minutes 54.20 seconds over stage three - a 16kilometre course that started and ended in Knowsley Safari Park.
That was enough to propel him into the gold jersey, a position he will now aim to defend over the next five days of racing.
Wiggins, who has endured a difficult season including a failed bid at the Giro d'Italia, was 32 seconds ahead of team-mate and fellow Briton Ian Stannard, who registered 20mins 26secs.
