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

Hawick, famous for its knitwear and the first whisky distillery to open in the region since 1837, will be the starting point of stage two. The race’s ninth visit to the Borders will feature a mix of roads old and new to the event, before a first-ever finish in Duns. The stage winner will be crowned in the shadow of the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum, which celebrates the two-time Formula 1 world champion who lived nearby.

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.

This year’s Tour of Britain will not be the only elite cycling event that the Borders will host in 2022: Galashiels will welcome Britain’s leading male and female cyclists for the first time when it hosts the Tour Series, the fun, free and family-friendly cycling event, on Wednesday 4 May.

The historic town, famed for its links to the textile industry, will host round two of the UK’s leading televised cycle race series. Visit tourseries.co.uk for more information.

More details of stage two will be announced in Summer 2022.
