The Tour of Britain
Contact DetailsMadeira Drive
It’s the first time the Tour (Britain’s premier cycle race) has come to Sussex in its 10 year history.
Stage Seven is the penultimate stage which usually decides the winner. This year the race has been upgraded to 2.HC which means that the organisers can offer more prize money and attract higher quality teams. Last year’s event was won by Sir Bradley Wiggins.
There will be three intermediate sprints and three ‘King of the Mountain’ climbs in this stage (yet to determine locations).
The stage begins in Surrey and will come into West Sussex, including Haywards Heath, then move into East Sussex, going to Eastbourne and Lewes before finishing in Brighton. It will enter the city through Ditchling Beacon, passing through Coldean Lane, Lewes Road, Elm Grove, Warren Road, Wilson Avenue, Marine Parade and ending on Madeira Drive.
