This year’s Tour of Britain will be packed with cycle stars including Geraint Thomas, Ben Swift and Ed Clancy, among others.

Thomas, on his sixth Tour of Britain, will lead Team Sky at the Tour, racing alongside teammate Swift. Clancy will lead the Rapha Condor Sharp team.

Other famous cycling names taking part in this year’s competition include Andy Tennant and former British Champion Kristian House, both for Rapha Condor Sharp. Rising stars Peter Kennaugh and Alex Dowsett will be at the Tour in Team Sky.

"The announcement of such a strong Team Sky line-up clearly sends a message that the team is serious about winning The Tour of Britain and pulling on the IG Markets Gold Jersey," said race director Mick Bennett. "In Geraint, Ben, Alex and Peter they have four of the finest British cyclists currently racing, all of whom are more than capable of winning The Tour of Britain.

"Rapha Condor Sharp also look to have a strong line-up, with which they will be hoping to become the first domestic British trade team to win a stage of The Tour of Britain."

Daily highlights of the Tour will be screened every evening on ITV4 with the race itself starting on Sunday September 11th in Peebles in the Scottish Borders. The Tour climaxes in London on Sunday September 18th.
