News – NFTO Junior Tour of Wales
The three day five stage race begins on Saturday 29 August, finishing on the summit of the Tumble Mountain on Monday 31 August.

This year’s race features eight international teams, with riders from Australia, the USA and Uzbekistan taking on the cream of the domestic talent, including a Wales squad headed by last year’s Points Jersey winner, Joe Holt. For the Brits, it isn’t just the longest race most will ever have ridden, it is also the final round of the season-long British Cycling National Junior Road Series and will crown the winner.

The Tour has been a stepping stone for riders like Geraint Thomas, Alex Dowsett, David Millar and Mark Cavendish making the move from the junior ranks into professional teams. The next generation are also making their mark with 2013 winner Wales’ Scott Davies part of the British Cycling Olympic Senior Academy and 2014 winner Ireland’s Eddie Dunbar a key rider in NFTO Pro Cycling.

The race consists of five stages, starting with a time trial on the morning of Saturday 29 August, and finishing with a road race through the Brecon Beacons on Monday 31 August bringing the riders to the final showdown on the Tumble Mountain early in the afternoon, after nearly 180 miles of tough racing. And with quality all the way through the field, it’s impossible to predict the winners of the Green, Polka-Dot, Blue and Yellow Jerseys.
