The OVO Energy Tour Of Britain rolls into Sedbergh on Tuesday 10th September, for what promises to be one of the most exciting and toughest stages in the Tour’s history.
Stage 4 of the UK's premier cycling event packs in almost 3,000 metres of climbing during its 171.5-kilometre (106-mile) east to west route.
The peloton will set off from Gateshead at 11am, pass Anthony Gormley’s world-famous Angel of the North along the day’s route, which heads into County Durham before crossing the Pennines into Cumbria, and making for Sedbergh.
The riders will battle it out for the Stage 3 Sprint in the town before making for the epic King of the Mountains climb at Gawthrop, near Dent, winding their way to the iconic Kendal finish, climbing the 500-metre, 11% average gradient climb of Beast Banks!
