The Tour of Britain stage six time trial kicks off on Thursday afternoon and sees riders cover 14.4 kilometres in Pershore.

Leader Matteo Trentin (Mitchelton-Scott) will be last to embark upon the loop.

The Italian enters the stage with just a three second advantage over Mathieu van der Poel (Corendon-Circus), with all riders in the top ten on the overall standings within 22 seconds of the leader's time and 19 of the best within 30 seconds.

The circular route is almost entirely flat, and eyes will be on British National time trial champion Alex Dowsett (Katusha Alpecin) to see if he can shine in the race of truth.

Michelle Arthurs-Brennan

Michelle Arthurs-Brennan is a traditional journalist by trade, having begun her career working for a local newspaper, where highlights included interviewing a very irate Freddie Star (and an even more irate theatre owner), as well as 'the one about the stolen chickens'.

Previous to joining the Cycling Weekly team, Michelle was Editor at Total Women's Cycling. She joined CW as an 'SEO Analyst', but couldn't keep her nose out of journalism and in the spreadsheets, eventually taking on the role of Tech Editor before her latest appointment as Digital Editor. 

Michelle is a road racer who also enjoys track riding and the occasional time trial, though dabbles in off-road riding too (either on a mountain bike, or a 'gravel bike'). She is passionate about supporting grassroots women's racing and founded the women's road race team 1904rt.

Michelle is on maternity leave from July 8 2022, until April 2023.
