Breaking away, Steven Cummings style

Break away artists are rare, but when it does happen it's pretty cool...

That's breakaway specialist, Steve Cummings at the finish of stage 7 in Superdevoluy, Criterium du Dauphine. His third win of the season and here's the reason why he's so damn good at it.

"When you're in a so called bigger team you always have an objective. Normally it's to do with GC and they use up pretty much every rider for that one goal. But in this team we don't have a GC rider, which leaves us free to pick our stages so I have more opportunities and I take them. 

"It's getting harder and harder to win, and I felt I had to try to force something. I wasn't thinking about winning; I was just thinking about training for the Tour de France."
