Needless to say, several of the top-level teams will field their British stars, with Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) and Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) saying that they intend to take part.

However Steve Cummings (Dimension Data) looks unlikely to defend his title having suffered two fractured vertebrae at the Tour de France.

A full start list will be published towards the end of August
