CW predicts 2012 Tour Series schedule

Start, Tour Series 2011, round 5, Stoke-on-Trent

Is this how the 2012 Tour Series schedule looks?

At present, only new host town and series opener Kirkcaldy, round seven host Torquay and round eight host Colchester have been officially confirmed by event organiser SweetSpot.

However, Cycling Weekly believes this is where the month-long series will be played out.

Oxford also looks set to be added to the calendar, while Stoke-on-Trent, Peterborough and Woking look set to continue their ever-present run in the event since its inception in 2009.

London's Canary Wharf will hold the series finale for the second year running.

CW's provisional schedule is subject to confirmation and could change. Two years ago, Tewkesbury was lined up as a host town, before it pulled out shortly before the series began.
