Adnams has always been a big supporter of cycling events, so you can imagine our excitement when we found out the Tour of Britain was coming to our doorstep. The first stage of OVO Energy Women’s Tour will begin in Framlingham and end in Southwold on Wednesday 13th June. We're delighted to be one of the tour sponsors and the official beer partner - so you'll definitely see us cheering on from the crowd. Over 100 professional riders will cover a total of 678km or 421 miles, from one glorious coast (Southwold) to another (Colwyn Bay). Each one of them will be riding in the hopes of becoming the 2018 General Classification Winner. Not only does the General Classification Winner receive the accolades of first place, they also go home with a prize of €36,220 or £31,600! The category we’ve continued to sponsor is Best British Rider, which last year was awarded to the very deserving Hannah Barnes. This year we’ve designed a jersey even bolder than the last and it will be donned by the Best British Rider 2018. The category winner will be awarded a cash prize of €1,000 (£870) and, of course, the beautiful Adnams jersey. Our CEO, Andy Wood, will be presenting the winner with the branded jersey as well as a mini keg of mosaic to celebrate with. The first stage of the tour starts in Framlingham, riding off towards Woodbridge and Ipswich, taking a loop back round to Framlingham before heading towards Southwold. They will be riding past our very own Adnams Distribution Centre in Reydon at around 1:45pm and then into Southwold, finishing on North Parade around 2pm. The full route and ETA’s can be found here. We'll be at the event serving tasters of Adnams Ghost Ship Alcohol Free from our the pink and blue Adnams tent - you can't miss us. The entire cycling event stretches five days and will be televised on ITV4 at 8pm every race night.
