Nick Nuyens claimed victory in the Tour of Britain on Sunday after wearing the leader's yellow jersey from stage one.
Nuyens was the Tour leader from the first stage
The last stage was won by the Belgian's Quick Step team-mate Luca Paolini, but Nuyens avoided any mishaps to take first place in London.
Great Britain's Mark Cavendish was well placed until the penultimate lap, when his wheel was clipped by Alfred Green.
"It would have been me and Paolini but a lack of professionalism by another rider has cost me," said Cavendish.
Quick Step reaped the benefits of sending a strong team to the six-day race, with Nuyens and Paolini each winning two stages as well as the yellow and green points jerseys.
"There were some pretty dangerous rides for the sprints," said Nuyens. "Some guys were taking risks and that might have been dangerous for me."
Paolini was delighted with the team's success.
"It's been a great race for Quick Step. Me and Nick are going very well at the moment and we like riding together."
