Across Britain, 2 - 9 September

The 2018 OVO Energy Tour of Britain, which takes place from 2 to 9 September, will include a team time trial for the first time, as well as a summit finish on Whinlatter in Cumbria on Stage Six. Sadly, the race does not come to Scotland this year, however, Scottish rider Joe Nally will be riding for the Great Britain Cycling Team. 

The 1,140-kilometre route will take the world’s top riders from Pembrey Country Park on the Carmarthenshire coast in South Wales to the streets of Central London, via Devon, Bristol, Warwickshire, Cumbria and Nottinghamshire across eight stages of racing.

We look forward to supporting Joe and the rest of the Great Britain Cycling Team.
