Tour series criterium logo

Organisers of the Tour of Britain stage race have today announced details of a televised national criterium series for next year.

The Tour Series will take place in May and June 2009 and will feature a series of mid-week city centre criteriums contested by 10 teams of five riders. Woking is so far the only town to sign up to the new series although organisers say they have had interest from more cities and towns than they can accommodate.
