In 2018, the Dragon Tour will take place at a brand new venue, the Glanusk Estate in the heart of the Brecon Beacons in South Wales.
The Glanusk Estate is regularly used as a backdrop for TV shows including Top Gear, and this new site will now be home to a weekend of technically challenging cycling. An exclusive group of 750 riders will explore the quiet roads, tackling 100km-140km per day, and between 300km – 500km over the three-day period.
CEO of Dragon Tour organiser Human Race Nick Rusling said: “This new site is a fantastic development for the Dragon Tour, allowing riders to start and finish in incredible cycling territory. No hectic towns or cities to navigate, just uninterrupted, beautiful cycling – which is what our riders visit Wales to enjoy.”
Dragon Tour riders can expect fully mapped and sign-posted open road routes with feed stations, medical support, sweep vehicle, motorcycle marshals, a free Dragon Tour memento and chip timing. Day three of the Dragon Tour merges with the Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales tackling famous climbs of The Bwlych, Devil’s Elbow and Devil’s Staircase.
