27 – 28 – 29 August 2016
Five stages, four jerseys, one bank holiday weekend, one hundred riders and a hundred and eighty miles of the best racing roads in the UK. The NFTO Junior Tour of Wales is the grand finale to the British Cycling Junior Road Series, and an event riders all over the world are desperate to add to their palmares.
Like most Grand Tours it starts with an individual time trial, followed by a rolling road stage, a circuit race, a flat, fast sprinter’s paradise, and the final run through the Brecon Beacons National Park, culminating at the now legendary climb of the Tumble. There’s something for everyone – and a look back through the race’s three decade history is a who’s who of future cycling superstars.
Entries for this year’s race are now open. British riders, please enter via the BC online system here. International entrants, please contact the organiser, via richh @ juniortourofwales dot org
