Kiwis to the Fore in Tour of Britain
16 Sep, 2013 - BikeNZ

While all the attention is on the return of 2012 Tour de France champion bradley Wiggins and the appearance of super sprinter Mark Cavendish, there’s a big contingent of New Zealand riders on the start line for the Tour of Britain.

Nine Kiwis are in Scotland for the first day of the Tour which is a long 209km grind to England, Wales before returning to the south of England and a final in London.

The 2013 Tour of Britain will certainly enjoy one of its best fields in recent years.

Jack Bauer, riding for Garmin-Sharp, will use the tour as a shakedown for the upcoming world championships to complete an outstanding year.

British UCI Continental team Node 4 Giordana is more like a Kiwi team in drag with five New Zealanders in the line-up comprising Mike Northey, Roman van Uden, Shem Rodger, Daniel Barry and James Williamson.

London Olympians Shane Archbold and Aaron Gate line-up for Belgium-based An Post Chainreaction while Tim Scully rides for Team Raleigh, another British Conti combination.

The eight stages cover just over 1000kms.
