Last week saw organisers of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain marking 75-days to go until the 2017 edition of the race gets underway in Scotland on Sunday 3 September.

Photocalls took place at the Stage One start line outside the City Chambers on the Royal Mile in the heart of Edinburgh, the picturesque East Lothian village of Haddington and at the top of one of the three SKODA King of the Mountains climbs – Scott’s View in the Scottish Borders.

We’ve pulled together some of the best pictures below in case you’ve missed them on our Twitter, Facebook or Instagram pages. ┬áDon’t forget you can find an interactive map of Stage One showing all of the intermediate Eisberg Sprints and SKODA King of the Mountains climbs here.
