Tour of Britain 2018 Route stage 7: West Bridgford - Mansfield
Saturday, 8 September 2018 - Stage 7 on the Tour of Britain is this year's longest race. At 223 kilometres, the riders travel from Bridgford to Mansfield for a likely bunch sprint.
Arrival town Mansfield hosted a departure last year and the aftertaste must have been appealing as the town in Nottinghamshire now serves as an arrival place. In 2017, the race went to Newark-on-Trent where Fernando Gaviria outsprinted the bunch.
A bunch sprint is the most likely outcome of 2018’s Mansfield-stage, too. The route takes in three climbs, but as they are all featured in the first half of the stage (at kilometre 23, kilometre 61, and kilometre 71) the sprint teams should not be confronted with any difficulties to control the race.
Fast finishers are offered an welcome insight into the closing kilometres as the riders pass through the finish before undertaking a short circuit around Mansfield.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprints (at kilometre 122, at kilometre 156, and at kilometre 171) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
