For the third edition running, Scotland will host multiple days of the AJ Bell Tour of Britain, with stage two of this year’s race taking place entirely in the Scottish Borders.

The race is no stranger to the Borders, having previously visited this stunning part of Britain on eight occasions. In addition to starting in Hawick, which made its debut as a host venue in the 2021 edition, stage two will pass through Jedbrugh and Kelso, both of which have previously welcomed the race.

However, for the first time in 2022, the race will visit the historic coastal town of Eyemouth before heading back inland for a challenging and unpredictable finale that features the ŠKODA King of the Mountains climbs of Wanside Rig, Mainslaughter Law and Hardens Hill.

Italian rider Matteo Trentin won the last stage to finish in the Borders: the former European champion triumphed in Kelso on day two of the 2019 race.
