Tour of Britain 2018 Route stage 4: Nuneaton - Leamington Spa
Wednesday, 5 September 2018 - At 183 kilometres, stage 4 on the Tour of Britain runs from Nuneaton to Royal Leamington Spa. At the end of a day on rolling roads the sprinters are likely to battle it out in the arrival place.
Once the flag is dropped, the Tour of Britain travels south to race just past the arrival town after merely 45 kilometres. The route continues south only to change direction at kilometre 100, just after the first KOM. Two more classified climbs are to follow – at kilometre 137 and at kilometre 148. The hurdles are unlikely to spoil a fast men’s party though, as the last hill – Burton Dassett – is crested with 35 kilometres remaining.
Both Nuneaton and Leamington Spa are hosting the Tour of Britain for the first time.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprints (at kilometre 45, at kilometre 74, and at kilometre 162) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
