First jersey for Manx cycling star
Sam Brand finished stage one of the Tour of Estonia in the King of the Mountains jersey, after a gruelling day in wet conditions.
The stage took the riders on a 187km route from the country's capital, Tallinn, to Tartu.
The race continues today, with a stage called the Tartu Grand Prix, which will consist of 18 laps of a 9.6km circuit around the historic city.
WHAT A DAY! Yesterday was an extremely wet stage 1 of #tourofestonia.— Sam Brand (@SamNBrand) May 25, 2019
This was more than just a stage. A Breakaway. The KOM. First podium. First jersey! Lots to fight for!
