Tour of Britain 2013 logo

The route of the 2013 Tour of Britain has been announced - and there are several changes to the previous race format, including a 10-mile individual time trial, the event's first summit finish and a women's race. This year, the 10th anniversary route visits England, Scotland and Wales.

The eight-stage 2013 ToB kicks off on Sunday, September 15 in Peebles, Scotland for the opening stage to Drumlanrig Castle. It's then south to the Lake District for what should be a tough route from Carlisle to Kendal (September 16) - at 225km, it's the longest stage in the race's history.
