The 2016 Tour of Britain is eagerly awaited by the racing fans and it is set to take place in September.
The reigning Olympic silver medalist Mark Cavendish has given his nod to be part of the Tour of Britain and will be seen at Congleton.
The 8 time Olympic gold medalist Sir Bradley Wiggins will also be taking part in the race at Congleton on September 6. This will be the first race that these two star cyclists will be taking part after their successful Rio stint. The other big names to watch out for during the Tour of Britain are: Steve Cummings, Andre Greipel and Owain Doull.
The Tour of Britain commences on September 4 and then heads on to Carlisle, Kendal and arrives at Congleton for the third stage on 6th September. The race director, Mick Bennett, is very happy that the Olympic champions have said ‘yes’ to take part in the Tour of Britain, just over three weeks of the Olympics event.
Mark Cavendish and Sir Bradley will also be taking part in the Devon stage of the race on the 9th September. Devon is a very attractive country and will offer the perfect backdrop for the tour of Britain cycling race.
Mark Cavendish will be taking part in this leg too and that too soon after winning the silver medal in the omnium event at Rio Olympics. The race returns to Dartmoor regularly and this is the 6th time that Tour of Britain is taking place in Devon in 7 years. This will be the sixth stage of the Tour of Britain race and everyone is waiting for the race to commence.
Mark Cavendish has his task cut out as there are many in form bikers in the fray for this year’s Tour of Britain. This will be the last time that Sir Bradley will be taking part in the race.
