Thousand of people have turned out across the East Midlands this morning to watch Olympic Champion Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish in action.

The two most well known members of Team Sky were the most talked about duo in the crowds for the Tour of Britain.

16 professional teams and 100 of the world's top cyclists take on an 840 mile race across England, Scotland and Wales. 

Stage two started outside Nottingham Castle at 10am this morning ( September 10th) and crowds were at least seven deep on the start line, the ride will head around the city before travelling through Wollaton Hall  - aka 'Wayne Manor' in this year's Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. 

As it leaves the city the race heads towards Trowell and into Derbyshire finishing in Knowsley. 

This leg of the race is 177.8 km. Check out the "quick" little video Capital got on the start line, and see if you can spot Wiggo and Cavo.
