August Bank Holiday 2017

Five stages, four jerseys, one bank holiday weekend, one hundred riders and over 200 miles of the best racing roads in the UK. The SD Sealants Junior Tour of Wales is the grand finale to the British Cycling Junior Road Series, and an event riders all over the world are eager to add to their palmares.

The 2016 edition saw the emergence of two exceptional talents, in race winner Fred Wright, and double-stage winner and Junior World Cyclo-Cross Champion Tom Pidcock. Both will return to battle for supremacy, where they will take on Welsh sensation Oscar Mingay, the leader of the season-long British Cycling Junior Road Series. With new British Junior Champion Louis Rose-Davies having a strong team behind him, three international squads, and talent all the way through the entry list, this year’s race will be yet another battle royale. With the longest and toughest course we have ever put together, the riders will be tested to the limits of their speed, climbing, stamina and recovery. Getting underway on Friday evening, 25th August, right in the heart of Brynmawr Town Centre, and drawing to its final showdown on the Tumble Mountain, bank holiday lunchtime, the stage is set.
