STAGE EIGHT: ABERDEEN & ABERDEENSHIRE – SUNDAY 13 SEPTEMBER

Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils have agreed a two-year deal to host the Tour of Britain, beginning with the final stage of the 2020 race on Sunday 13 September.

Not only will the 2020 stage mark the first time the Tour of Britain has visited the region, it will also be the furthest point north the modern edition of the race has ever reached.

Full details of the route will be unveiled in due course, although it can be revealed that the successor to Dutch sensation Mathieu van der Poel will be crowned in Aberdeen city centre following a day of racing largely set in the stunning Aberdeenshire countryside.
