The route heads inland towards Wareham and Milton Abbas and just before Okeford Fitzpaine a sharp righthander leads onto the last climb of the day. Okeford Hill is 1.7 kilometres long and averaging 7.1%.

Still almost 60 kilometres to go at the summit, mostly on rolling terrain, before a – sprint? – finish in the heart of Ferndown town centre.

The 7th stage of the Tour of Britain starts at 11:00 and the race is expected to finish around 15:25 – both are local times (BST).
