Starting in Suffolk, 17 teams will battle their way through five stages, eventually heading to Wales for the first time ever, where the race will come to its nail-biting finish.
Why we’re sponsoring the Women’s Tour
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.
Making a move toward gender parity
This year is extra special as we’ve increased the prize money, so for the first time ever, stage by stage, jersey by jersey, the Women’s Tour riders stand to win the exact same amount as the men in the Tour of Britain.
Clean affordable energy for all
We’re passionate about powering a sustainable future. A big part of that vision involves replacing gas-guzzling cars and cleaning up our air, so it feels only right to be involved in events that celebrate the ultimate mode of sustainable transport – cycling.
Energy and cycling are both at the forefront of smart technology, where the smallest analytical insight can make the biggest difference. In cycling, every second saved brings you closer to the leader’s jersey; while in energy, we’re using innovation to power a greener future.
