16 February 2015 13:33pm
The longest stage of the 2016 Tour of Britain will be Stage Four on Wednesday 7 September with a gruelling day in the saddle comprising of 217 kilometres through the heart of Mid-Wales and Denbighshire, Flintshire and Powys.
Not only will it be the longest day for the riders but will also see them tackle the most climbing, with a total ascent of 4,133m, as they feel the force of the Welsh mountains with the stage heading through the Clwydian Hills and Cambrian Mountains.
Starting in Denbigh the race will head first into Flintshire and Mold before going south to Corwen and crossing into Powys, running along the outskirts of Snowdonia National Park. The peloton will then continue south, passing through Rhayader, before the fast run in to Builth Wells and the finish on the Royal Welsh Showground in a day that will surely prove crucial to the destination of the leader's yellow jersey.
