Conquista was in a sweltering Congleton for the start of stage 3 of 2016's Tour of Britain, and followed the peloton all the way to Knutsford's Tatton Park.
Team Sky's Ian Stannard took the stage, and the day's combativity prize, with a breathtaking ride that saw him drive a four-man break from the opening kilometres all the way to the final climb, where he left his companions in his wake with over 40km still to go.
Take a look at our gallery of shots from the day's action.

It feels to us like Liverpool is a city at a crossroads. The worst pedestrian and cyclist road safety track record in the country. Deprived neighbourhoods with chronic health issues and low car ownership. Offered millions of pounds of central government funding for local transport development, the city has elected to remove an important active travel corridor prior to the publication of a review into its effectiveness. The actions of a local councillor, praised by the City Mayor, could lead to a huge reduction in local transport funding that will set the city back years. We look back at the last two years, the impact of Covid, and ask is this the end of the road for a co-ordinated active travel plan for Liverpool?
