Junior Tour of Wales

The Junior Tour of Wales is a prestigious five-stage, three-day event held annually on the August Bank holiday weekend. It attracts some of the top international juniors, with teams from as far afield as the Netherlands and Belgium.

British past finishers who have gone onto professional racing contracts include David Millar, Geraint Thomas, Charles Wegelius and Mark Cavendish. The 27th running of this event proved to be as well-organised, thrilling and hard-fought as past editions have been and it is easy to see why the race has a reputation for being one of the hardest Junior stage races in Europe.
