While the Scottish Borders is no stranger to the race, Hawick will make its debut as a host venue in September, joining Jedburgh, Peebles and Kelso in welcoming the UK’s most prestigious cycle race to town.

The historic city of Edinburgh will then host its first stage finish of the modern Tour of Britain, having previously welcomed the race for stage starts in 2015 and 2017, the latter as part of a Scottish Grand Départ.

Details of the stage route (including SKODA King of the Mountains climbs and sprints locations) and full timetables will be available in due course.
