Tour of Britain 2019 Route stage 7: Warwick - Burton Dassett

Tour of Britain stage 7Friday 13 September - Stage 7 in the Tour of Britain is 188.7 kilometres long. The race sets off from historic Warwick and serves an action packed finale with three ascents of the Burton Dassett climb. The summit lies atop this 1.4 kilometres uphill at 4.9%.

The first part of the route is predominantly flat. The riders head north until Atherstone to return south on the east side of Coventry. The first proper climb is Friz Hill after 132.6 kilometres, but the real action is expected on the Burton Dassett Country Park circuit.

Almost 15 kilometres before entering the finishing circuit the riders get a first taste of what’s in store on the short and sharp Sun Rising Hill. The route continues to the first climb up Burton Dassett. In fact, the line is situated at the summit of the 1.4 kilometres uphill at 4.9%. The race then takes in two laps on the 12 kilometres circuit. So the Burton Dassett climb is crested two more times, while the last haul up leads to the day honours and, possibly, the leader’s jersey.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds. The intermediate sprints (at kilometre 16.6, at kilometre 78.6, and at kilometre 140) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
