Riders are set to battle it out at the Tour of Britain 2023 After a truncated edition in 2022 due to police having to head off to administer the Queen’s funeral, Britain’s biggest race – the Tour of Britain – returns for (hopefully) a full run in 2023.
It’s a much more compact edition this year with the race taking place mostly in the middle of the country so if you’re anywhere south of Manchester and north of Reading you have precious few excuses for not getting to the roadside to cheer on your favourite rider.
Among the riders set to light up the race are previous winner Wout van Aert and 2022 second place finisher Tom Pidcock , who’ll hope to go one better in 2023. Tour of Britain overview
