Over 2,650 metres of climbing in a little under 150 kilometres make this the queen stage of the AJ Bell Tour of Britain.

Stage four begins in Redcar, marking the first time the borough of Redcar and Cleveland will have hosted the AJ Bell Tour of Britain, before the race crosses into North Yorkshire to end a 13-year absence from the county. Popular seaside towns such as Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Whitby will be raced through en route to the stunning North York Moors National Park.

Unrelenting and unforgiving throughout, the final 30 kilometres of stage four feature the climbs of Carlton Bank (9.8% average gradient) and Newgate Bank (6% average gradient) in quick succession. The former has ŠKODA King of the Mountains points up for grabs, the latter offering three, two and one-second time bonuses.

Given the fast descent into the finish at Duncombe Park, one of Yorkshire’s finest historic houses and estates, those leading the race over the top of these climbs will likely battle it out for the stage victory.

Can Wiv SunGod’s Canadian rider Benjamin Perry retain the AJ Bell leader’s jersey or will the high-profile names surge to the top of the standings?
