Team Plowman Craven and their distinct pink and blue kit brought traffic on London’s Victoria Embankment to a standstill earlier today as they previewed the opening stage of this year’s Tour of Britain for ITV’s London Tonight.

Plowman Craven Riders Simon Richardson (pictured) and Simon Gaywood joined reporter Nick Wallace on the 8.5 km opening circuit through Central London to promote the race which begins on 7 September.

You can watch how they got on tonight (Tuesday) at 6pm on ITV (may not be available in all regions).
