Kennaugh battles on through illness at Tour of Spain

Peter Kennaugh is still battling on at the Tour of Spain, despite being struck down by the illness which has swept through the Team Sky ranks.

John Lee Augustyn and Ben Swift had to pull out on Monday because "they were so sick," said team principal Dave Brailsford.

It hasn't been established whether the riders are suffering from a virus or food poisoning, but it was continuing to affect them during stage four yesterday, with Simon Gerrans tweeting after the race that he spent the day "spewing in Spain".

Kennaugh finished in 187th yesterday, on the same time as fellow Manxman Mark Cavendish.
