Briton Jonathan Tiernan-Locke has a lead of 18 seconds heading into Sunday's final stage of the Tour of Britain after finishing eighth behind Spain's Pablo Urtasun in the penultimate stage.

The final stage takes today in Surrey where 200,000 people are expected to line the route.

The riders will cover 90 miles of roads, racing from Reigate through Surrey Hills and finishing on Guildford's cobbled high street later this afternoon

Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins withdrew on Friday with a stomach bug.

But after his exploits this summer and the success of Team GB Cycling in the Olympics and Paralympics, there has never been so much interest in British Cycling.

We'll have more on the final stage later.
