Full list of television coverage for the 2016 Tour of Britain (September 4-11)

As the status and popularity of the Tour of Britain continues to grow, so too does its coverage. British viewers will have a choice of watching live action on both ITV4 and BIKE, with both channels also offering highlights.

This year’s edition features a star-studded startlist of British and international talent, including Sir Bradley Wiggins – in his final stage race, Mark Cavendish, André Greipel, Alex Dowsett, Ian Stannard, Tony Martin and Tom Dumoulin.

The presence of some of the best time triallists should make for a great day’s racing on stage seven’s individual ride against the clock.
