Tour of Britain 2022 Route stage 2: Harwick - Duns

Tour of Britain 2022 stage 2Monday 5 September - The 2nd stage of the Tour of Britain takes place in the Scottish Borders. Interesting finale with three short climbs inside the last 30 kilometres before a 4 kilometres descent take the riders onto the flat final kilometre.

The race begins on a false flat section of 10 kilometres. Which sets the tone. The riders traverse a lot of undulating terrain on the road from Harwick to Duns.

The gradients on the three climbs in the finale – Wanside Rigg (2.1 kilometres at 5.7%), Mainslaughter Law (1.7 kilometres at 5.9%), Hardens Hill (1.9 kilometres at 4.7%) -, will be challenging for the pure sprinters. A decimated peloton is expected to battle it out for the stage win. Or an attacker is to snatch the victory.

Hardens Hill peaks out with 5.4 kilometres remaining. A 4 kilometres downhill leads onto a flat final section.
