Tour of Britain 2014

Date range:
September 7-14

2014 Tour of Britain

Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky) returns to the Tour of Britain with the intention of retaining the overall title he won in 2013 but the former Tour de France winner will face stiff opposition with Michal Kwiatkowski (Omega Pharma QuickStep), Leopold Koenig (Netapp Endura), Nicolas Roche (Tinkoff Saxo) and Steve Cummings (BMC Racing) all set to compete over the eight-day race spanning September 7-14.
 

Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma QuickStep), who won three stages in the race last year, also returns. The British rider is still feeling his way back into form and will compete against Marcel Kittel (Giant Shimano), Adam Blythe (NFTO), Theo Bos (Belkin) and Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp).


The race kicks off with a circuit race around the city of Liverpool with eight laps of a 16 kilometre course. Although there’s a classified climb on each lap it will not prove testing enough to split the race with the sprinters given the chance to shine on the shortest day of the race.
