Daniel Lloyd TOB Stage 6 Preview still

Today's Stage 5 of the Tour of Britain saw crosswinds and some toug uncategorised climbs as well as some well-timed attacks blow the race apart, with winner Marc de Maar of United Healthcare attacking off a select group of fewer than 30 riders to take the stage win. Tomorrow looks even tougher as the race heads into Wales with the tail end of the stage seeing the riders tackle Caerphilly Mountain twice before the finish in front of the town's historic castle, as previewed in the latest video from IG-Sigma-Sport's Daniel Lloyd. The selection will have been made well before that, however, with plenty of climbing on the way from the stage start in Welshpool. The IG Markets race leader's golden jersey has changed hands each day so far - tomorrow doesn't look like it's going to buck that trend.

Does anyone else find the sound of Daniel's brakes very very satisfying?
Im guessing it is the sound of very expensive brakes stopping very expensive wheels - something i myself am not familiar with - hence the excitement.

Cosmics with an Exalith braking surface, I reckon
