Highlights of the Pearl Izumi Tour Series will be shown on ITV4

The Pearl Izumi Tour Series kicks off on the Isle of Wight on Thursday (May 14), with Olympic champions Sir Bradley Wiggins and Ed Clancy among the riders who will feature over the 10 rounds.

Over the next five weeks, 10 cities will play host to the circuit-racing series, won last year by the Rapha Condor JLT squad, and ITV4 will broadcast the highlights of each round.

Starting in Ryde, the series heads to Redditch, Aberystwyth, Motherwell, Durham, Barrow, Croydon, Canary Wharf, Peterborough and Bath, where the overall individual winner will be crowned.

ITV4 will broadcast the highlights the day after each round, starting at 8pm on Friday, May 15, for all the action from the Island.

Ned Boulting will be on hand to present the programmes from a number of rounds, with Jill Douglas filling his shoes in his absence, with each programme available to watch online for 30 days after its transmission.
