The OVO Energy Tour of Britain is coming to Suffolk!

By Sarah Groves, also posted in News on

mark cavendish, tour of britain 2017Cycling is the world’s top free-to-view sporting event, and it’s fantastic news that Stage Six of Britain’s premier road cycling race, the OVO Energy Tour of Britain will take place entirely within Suffolk. You can find out more about the title sponsor Ovo Energy here. Adnams is very proud to sponsor the Suffolk stage on Friday 8 September 2017, which heads east from Newmarket Racecourses to the finish in Aldeburgh. If you’re a cycling fan, this is a must-watch event. “Adnams has supported cycling at all levels since 2011 so we are hugely proud to sponsor the Best British Rider at the OVO Energy Tour of Britain once again." said Emma Hibbert, Adnams Marketing Director. “Having an entire stage in Suffolk is really exciting and doubly so for us as it starts and ends in towns that Adnams has a strong association with. The stage begins in Newmarket where Adnams has partnered with Newmarket Racecourses for many years, and finishes in Aldeburgh which is home to a number of our pubs and our Aldeburgh shop. We look forward to welcoming the riders and enthusiastic spectators later this year.” You can find a Suffolk stage route map here. The OVO Energy Tour of Britain takes place between Sunday 3rd and Sunday 10th September 2017. We’ll keep you up-to-date with how you can get involved over the next few months, in the meantime, keep the date (Friday 8 September) in your diary!
