Tour of Britain

The current format of the Tour of Britain has been running since 2004 – it has previously been know as The Milk Race, The Kellogg’s Tour and The Pru Tour. The current format is a UCI Europe Tour event and classed as UCI 2.HC – one level below The World Tour. Theses are my photos taken in Cheltenham (Stage 7) and Cardiff (Stage 8)
