Otley Cycle Race 2009

The Tour of Britian is coming to Exminster, the Tour of Britain is the UK's biggest professional cycle race and the country's largest free-to-spectate sporting event.

Stage Six of The Tour of Britain is hosted by Devon on Friday 20th September. This year Devon has really raised the bar and will make history as the first stage to host a summit finish. Starting in Sidmouth on the Jurassic Coast, the stage will cover 85 miles (137km) of gruelling Devon countryside, finishing with a SKODA King of the Mountains climb at Haytor on Dartmoor. Potentially one of the hardest stages in the Tour and one of the last, this race promises to be packed with excitement and one not to miss.

More information about the tour can be found on the tour website and information about viewing the Devon stage and road closures can be found from Devon County News Site.
