We’re now just 30 days away from the start of this year’s OVO Energy Tour of Britain, the largest annual free-to-attend sporting event in Britain!

Over one million people line the race route every year, and we’re expecting amazing crowds once again as the world’s best riders tackle eight days of racing from Pembrey Country Park in Carmarthenshire (Sunday 2 September) to London a week later.

Start planning your visit to Britain’s leading cycle race by visiting our Stages page: we have interactive maps, download stage timetables and spectator guides to ensure you have an amazing day watching the OVO Energy Tour of Britain!

As well as being an innovative route, this year’s stages have been designed to be as spectator friendly as possible: fans could get multiple viewings of riders on all eight days!

Across the next 30 days we’ll also be bringing you information on which cycling stars will be in action. In the meantime, our Teams page has vital statistics for those 20 squads taking part in this year’s race.
