Fresh from hosting the British National Road Race Championships in
June, top class cycling returns to Abergavenny this September as
the town hosts the finish of the 3rd stage of the 2014 Tour of
The race has finished in Caerphilly for the past three years
and has seen tens of thousands of people flock to the town and
nearby Caerphilly Mountain to catch a glimpse of the action and
create a superb party atmosphere.
The fans are sure to be out in force this year as well, with the
riders taking on a route that will see them start out in the Mid
Wales town of Newtown.
The peleton will continue south with the road taking them through
Knighton, Builth Wells and Brecon and over some tough climbs in the
Brecon Beacons National Park. The action will then culminate
with a climb to the top of the Tumble Mountain above Abergavenny, a route that
could suit local favourite Geraint Thomas.
The cyclists taking part will be confirmed nearer the time, but
previous participants have included former world champions Thor
Hushovd and Mark Cavendish, current Giro d'Italia champion Nairo
Quintana and ex-Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins.
