The Tour of Britain is a week-long cycle race that started on September 7. It runs from Scotland to Manchester's Deansgate, covering approximately 1,250 kilometres in the process.

Dylan Groenewegen won stage three, which travelled from Berwick to Newcastle. The County Durham stage of the Tour of Britain is stage four, beginning in Gateshead, passing through our county and ending in Kendal in Cumbria.

Stage four promises to be one of the toughest days in modern OVO Energy Tour of Britain history, packing in almost 3,000 metres of climbing during its 171.5-kilometre (106-mile) east to west route.

The race is only briefly passing through one part of County Durham, but it will go from Ebchester, along the A694 to Shotley Bridge, down Crawleyside Bank (the B6278) to Stanhope, turning right at the Grey Bull and across the river, passing through beautiful countryside to Middleton in Teesdale.

The next main town for the Tour of Britain will be Brough, then a sprint at Kirkby Stephen.
