Tour of Britain 2019

The 80th edition of the Tour of Britain is being held between Sunday 8th September and Sunday 15th September 2019. While the first edition of the race was in 1945, just after the Second World War, the new version of the race began in 2004 - now in its 16th year. The race is part of the UCI Europe Tour.

The Tour of Britain is an eight-day stage race that includes both flat and hilly stages. The current champion is Julian Alaphilippe (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step), who completed a fantastic win just after winning the Tour de France King of the Mountains jersey last year. He was joined on the podium by Wout Poels (Team Sky) and Primoz Roglic (Team LottoNL-Jumbo).

The Tour of Britain 2019 race profile:

While the specifics of the route are still to be announced, it has been revealed that the race will include the Merseyside area of the Wirral, which will host its first ever stage.

Cllr Phil Davies, leader of Wirral Council, said: “This is incredibly exciting news. We can’t wait to welcome the Tour of Britain to Wirral. To get the chance to play host to a global sporting event, in the middle of our Borough of Culture year, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which we just could not miss. I am delighted we’ve been able to make it happen.

“The Tour of Britain is broadcast around the world and to have Wirral and Birkenhead centre stage is a huge honour. I know Wirral residents will share my excitement and I am just thrilled they will have the chance to see this event for themselves and make memories with their families which will stay with them forever.

Over the course of the eight stages, the peloton will have to tackle Britain’s unpredictable terrain, making it an exciting spectacle suited to aggressive attackers.

Traditionally, the Tour of Britain often concludes in London with an opportunity for sprinters to take a stage win. Last year, Caleb Ewan (Team Lotto Soudal) sprinted to victory in the final stage.

Recent winners and contenders

Before Alaphilippe, multiple winner Lars Boom (Team Roompot - Charles) won in 2017, while previous winners of the Tour of Britain include British rider Steve Cummings (Team Dimension Data) in 2016, Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Dimension Data) in 2015 and 2009 and Bradley Wiggins (retired) in 2013.

Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data) has the most stage wins, followed by Boasson Hagen, while Andre Greipel (Team Team Arkéa Samsic), Elia Viviani (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step) and Caleb Ewan have all won multiple stages.

Coming just before the World Championships, the Tour of Britain is seen as a great opportunity for the key players to find form, and in recent years has seen a host of the top cyclists enter.

Plus, as Britain’s major professional bike race, the best British riders will be looking to impress and follow in the footsteps of previous home-grown winners Cummings and Bradley Wiggins. British talent includes Owain Doull (Team Sky), Ben Swift (UAE-Team Emirates) and riders on the British National team. The line-up will see a mix of UCI World Tour teams and local Continental teams on the start list.

Big names such as Alaphilippe, Roglic and Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) - who had a poor Tour of Britain last year - will once more be favourites. Wout Poels will hope to go one better this year, while Bob Jungels (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step), Stefan Kung (Team Groupama - FDJ), Tejay van Garderen (Team EF Education First) will be dangerous.
