Through eight stages of nail-biting racing, this year’s 1,140km route takes star-studded teams from South Wales to Central London, and we’re giving you the chance to follow closely behind in the VIP convoy car.
Why we’re sponsoring the Tour of Britain
We believe in being a force for good and powering positive change. As the title sponsor, we want to give fans across the country unparalleled access to watch the world's best riders competing on their doorsteps, completely for free – inspiring a whole new generation to get on their bikes and give cycling a try.
Green is unstoppable
The Tour of Britain isn’t just about the races; it’s also a celebration of the ultimate mode of sustainable transport. This year is set to be even greener than usual, as we’re working with the charity I Dig Trees to plant saplings on behalf of the stage winners; making a lasting difference in reducing CO2 emissions and improving green spaces.
In cycling, smart technology can shave precious off seconds a rider’s time; while in energy, we’re using innovation to power a greener future. This year, we’re bringing both worlds even closer together by giving you the chance to try out the latest e-bikes at some of the tour stages.
The Tour of Britain competition is now closed.
