The fourth and longest stage of the Tour of Britain has taken place in Wales starting in Denbighshire and finishing in Powys for the first time.

Riders set off from Denbigh and faced a total ascent of 4,133m (13,559 ft) over the stage, which included the Clwydian Hills and Cambrian Mountains.

More than 120 cyclists followed the 135 mile (217km) route before ending at the Royal Welsh showground in Builth Wells.
