The opening two stages of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain this September will take place in Scotland for the first time in modern history, with the Scottish Borders hosts an entire stage for the first time on Sunday 8 September.

Stage Two will start and finish in the centre of Kelso, with the world’s best riders tackling an anti-clockwise loop via Coldstream, Chirnside and Duns before heading, via the Scott’s View climb, to Melrose and on to the Eildon Hills.

Kelso hosted the finish of stage one in 2017, when Australian Caleb Ewan took victory in a thrilling sprint.
