The Tour of Britain is to return to Wrexham again later in the year, hopefully repeating the success of the event last September!

Wrexham will be part of the second day of the event, on Monday 8th September.

The day’s race will start from Knowsley, scene of Sir Bradley Wiggins’ time trial victory in the 2013 Tour, before heading across North Wales to a stage finishing with a lap of the Great Orme and a seafront sprint in Llandudno.
