Racing Into Devon The Tour Of Britain
Stage Six of the Tour is in Devon. The cyclists climb 3139m over 150km from Sidmouth to Haytor.
Devon will host stage six of Britain's premier road-cycling event.
21 of the world's top cycling teams will be winding through 150km of Devon's countryside on Friday, 9th September.
Starting in Sidmouth, the super-athletes will work their way up to Haytor, Dartmoor, via Mid-Devon.
The Tour of Britain is an eight stage road race across Britain. This year, it started in Glasgow and will finish in London.
It's a race, so the fastest time wins!
Each of the teams in the Tour of Britain will pick their six rider line-up from their squad.
Riders have designated roles, such as a team leader, to aim for a place as high as possible on the general classification, a sprinter to target stage wins, a specialist climber for the hillier stages and several designated helpers.
The Tour of Britain kicked off in 2004 and quickly became the country's largest free-to-watch live annual sporting event, attracting over a million spectators to the roadside each September.
Many hundreds of thousands more will be watching via television and online around the world.
