It’s been a tradition of ours to watch the Tour of Britain every year it rolls into Devon. This year the sixth stage went from Sidmouth to the top of Haytor. As it was the first summit finish in the Tour’s history, we took the decision to make our wait by the finishing line, and opposite the winner’s podium. When we arrived, there were only a few others there. By the time the race crossed the line there were thousands crowding the route. The early gloom of morning had given way to bright sunshine, and the quiet of Dartmoor was shattered by the excitement of the spectators.
