Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma Quick Step) wins the final stage in Denmark.
Provisional start list released
Joining Wiggins on the start line on stage one in Scotland will be former teammate Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma QuickStep), Tour de France runner-up Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and Milan San Remo winner Gerald Ciolek (MTN-Qhubeka).
"Every year the rider list for The Tour of Britain has grown more and more impressive, with this year being no exception to that," race director Mick Bennett announced on the race’s website.
"We have world-class sprinters like Mark Cavendish and Gerald Ciolek, the very best time trialists in Sir Bradley Wiggins and Alex Dowsett, and exceptional climbing talents in Nairo Quintana and Dan Martin, plus many others who I could mention.
"I, like all cycling fans in Britain, look forward to seeing how this year's race develops over the eight stages and who can succeed Jonathan Tiernan Locke in the IG Gold Jersey."
Tiernan Locke has not been selected to ride this year. However Giro d’Italia stage winner Alex Dowsett is set to start. Daniel Martin (Garmin-Sharp) also makes the provisional start list. The Irish climber crashed out of the Vuelta a Espana and will be hoping to use the Tour of Britain as preparation for the World Championships which take place later this month in Florence, Italy.
Fresh from their success in the Tour de l'Avenir, brothers Simon and Adam Yates will compete for a strong looking Great Britain team.
The 2013 Tour of Britain starts on September 15 and finishes in London on September 22.
