Organisers of the Tour of Britain (2.HC) and Women's Tour (Women's WorldTour) have confirmed to Cyclingnews that the two events will continue in 2020. SweetSpot announced earlier this week that OVO Energy will end sponsorship of the two events.

"Currently OVO Energy won’t be staying on with the race in any capacity, although it's important to stress that we maintain an excellent relationship with them, so by no means would we rule out them being involved again in some way in the future," said Peter Hodges, PR & Marketing Director of SweetSpot Group.
