Jersey to host 2014 Tour Series finale

Yanto Barker, Tour Series 2013, Stoke-on-Trent

Jersey will host the finale of the 2014 Tour Series on Friday June 13, it was announced today.

Although two races were held in Belfast and Dublin in 2010, the visit to the largest of the Channel Islands next year will represent the first time an official round of the popular criterium series will be staged outside of mainland Britain. 

The announcement was made this morning and was attended by Nigel Mansell, who both lives on the island and is the backer for this year's series winners, Team UK Youth.

A weekend of road races and cycling-related activities is scheduled to follow on from the Tour Series finale.

Next year's Tour Series will once again be played out in towns and cities across a five-week period, with the opening round taking place on May 13. The other host venues will be announced in due course.
