THE TOUR OF Britain – with the seventh stage of the cycle race through Devon this Saturday (15 September) – is to be shown live on ITV4. It will be the first time that action from every day of the eight-stage Tour of Britain has been broadcast live, both via ITV4 and streamed online through the ITV website…

Cycle fans can look forward to two-hours of live coverage from every stage, in addition to the continuation of the hour-long daily highlights, broadcast every evening on ITV4.

Niall Sloane, ITV Director of Sport, said: "Following our coverage of the Tour de France as well as the Vuelta, we're delighted to bring ITV4 viewers a third major cycling event this year with all the key action from The Tour of Britain."

Commenting on the announcement, Hugh Roberts, Chief Executive of SweetSpot Group, the organisers and promoters of The Tour of Britain, said:

"This is a great step forward for The Tour of Britain in what has been a fantastic year for cycling in this country, in a sport that continues to grow, year-on-year. We look forward to rounding off the year in spectacular style with the best-ever Tour of Britain.

"We are delighted that for the first time ever, cycling fans can watch each day of The Tour live, wherever they are in Britain."

Live action will get underway on Sunday 9 September for Stage One from Ipswich to Norfolk Showground, continuing throughout the eight-day race, giving fans the chance to see more of The Tour of Britain than ever before.

The Devon stage, from Barnstaple to Dartmouth passing through Tavistock and the Dartmoor National Park, is on Saturday 15 September.
