Some of the biggest names in cycling will be taking to the streets of Stoke-on-Trent when The Tour of Britain returns to the city for the sixth consecutive year.
The City Centre will be the start point for competitors racing in the fourth stage of The Tour of Britain on Wednesday, September 18. Stage four of the race will start in Stoke-on-Trent before heading west to a finish in Llanberis in the heart of Snowdonia.
There will be a minimum of 16 professional teams from around the world taking part in The Tour of Britain and around 100 of the world’s top cyclists, which in previous years have included the likes of Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish, Ivan Basso and Thor Hushovd.
Details of the route the riders will take in the city before they head to the finish line in North Wales will be revealed nearer to the time.
On top of The Tour of Britain, the Tour Series will also be returning to Stoke-on-Trent for the fifth time this year. Cyclists Steven Burke and Ed Clancy, who were members of the men's team pursuit squad which won Olympic gold last summer, will be two of the stars of the show at the City Centre race on Tuesday 21 May.
