What happened in the 2022 race?
GRAND DÉPART: ABERDEEN TO GLENSHEE SKI CENTRE | SUNDAY 4 SEPTEMBER


Israel – Premier Tech’s Corbin Strong claimed the biggest road victory of his career to date on Sunday as he claimed the opening stage of the AJ Bell Tour of Britain atop Glenshee Ski Centre in Aberdeenshire.

The Kiwi timed his sprint to perfection to pip Omar Fraile (INEOS Grenadiers) to the win at the end of a stage raced out during inclement weather throughout.

This victory was Corbin’s second notable victory in Great Britain in the past month: he also won the scratch won at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

STAGE TWO: HAWICK TO DUNS | MONDAY 5 SEPTEMBER


Cees Bol claimed his first victory since March 2021 in dramatic style as he dramatically pipped Briton Jake Stewart to win stage two of the AJ Bell Tour of Britain in Duns on Monday.

The Team DSM rider timed both his sprint and bike throw to the line to perfection to claim his first victory in the race, denying Stewart the same achievement in the process.

Corbin Strong (Israel – Premier Tech) placed third to extend his lead at the top of the standings and claim the AJ Bell leader’s jersey for another day.

STAGE THREE: DURHAM TO SUNDERLAND | TUESDAY 6 SEPTEMBER


Belgian rider Kamiel Bonneu claimed the biggest victory of his professional career as a four-rider breakaway group ripped up the script on stage three of the AJ Bell Tour of Britain in Sunderland.

The 23-year-old Sport Vlaanderen – Baloise rider attacked in the final kilometre to beat Ben Perry (Wiv SunGod), Alexandar Richardson (Saint Piran) and Mathijs Paasschens (Bingoal Pauwels Sauce WB) to the line.

There was added drama as Israel – Premier Tech’s Corbin Strong was initially awarded the AJ Bell leader’s jersey for a third day before the UCI commissaires panel reviewed their decision almost two hours after the conclusion of the stage.

As a result, Perry took a seven-second lead over Strong, with Paasschens a further four seconds back. The change gave British domestic team Wiv SunGod the overall race lead, along with the Sportsbreaks.com sprints jersey (courtesy of Matt Teggart) and the ŠKODA King of the Mountains jersey (with Jacob Scott).

STAGE FOUR: REDCAR TO DUNCOMBE PARK, HELMSLEY | WEDNESDAY 7 SEPTEMBER


Movistar Team’s Gonzalo Serrano moved in to the AJ Bell Tour of Britain race lead after winning a dramatic fourth stage between Redcar and Duncombe Park, Helmsley, on Wednesday.

Serrano pipped home favourite Tom Pidcock (INEOS Grenadiers), Dylan Teuns (Israel – Premier Tech) and a second INEOS rider – Spaniard Omar Fraile – to the victory after the quartet broke clear over the climb of Newgate Bank with 8.4 kilometres remaining.

In addition to becoming the first Spaniard to win a stage of the UK’s leading cycle race in 10 years, Serrano moved into the AJ Bell leader’s jersey, with both Pidcock and Fraile trailing by seven seconds.

STAGE FIVE: WEST BRIDGFORD TO MANSFIELD | THURSDAY 8 SEPTEMBER


Belgian rider Jordi Meeus (BORA – hansgrohe) sprinted to the biggest victory of his career on stage five of the AJ Bell Tour of Britain in Mansfield.

Meeus edged out Stanisław Aniolkowski (Bingoal Pauwels Sauces WB) as home favourite Tom Pidcock (INEOS Grenadiers) placed third to gain four seconds on race leader Gonzalo Serrano (Movistar Team).

Pidcock, second overall, moved to within just three seconds back on Serrano and also won the Dodl by AJ Bell points jersey. Team-mate Omar Fraile finished third on general classification, seven seconds in arrears.
