Women’s Tour To End in London

February 15, 2017

London will host the final stage of the 2017 Women’s Tour, with the event to begin in Daventry on June 7. The five-day event will conclude in the English capital on June 11.

Its fourth edition will also include stages in Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire and Derbyshire.

All of the world’s top 15 teams will take part in the race, which is a part of the UCI Women’s WorldTour.

“This year’s route will combine testing climbs and beautiful scenery in the heart of England with the London finish, which will be an undoubted highlight of the sporting calendar,” race director Mick Bennett said.

The 2016 championship was won by Britain’s Lizzie Deignan with the Boels Delmans team.
