News: Tour Series 2022

Reigning champions Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling and CAMS – Basso and former winners WiV SunGod will be among the 26 teams competing in this year’s Tour Series.

Returning for its 13th edition in 2022 (first held in 2009), racing begins in the market town of Guisborough on Bank Holiday Monday 2 May, and the country’s leading domestic squads will all be in action. A successful title defence would see Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling become the third men’s team in succession to win back-to-back crowns, while CAMS – Basso will seek to become the second teams in women’s history to win three-consecutive titles.

The Tour Series rounds 2022
As part of organiser SweetSpot’s continued commitment to supporting gender equality in cycling, the 2022 series will feature a new, alternating race-day schedule that will see the women’s race follow the men’s event at selected rounds. Additionally, the prize fund will once again be matched for both men’s and women’s series.

May 2: Guisborough (North East)
May 4: Galashiels (Scotland)
May 10: Sunderland (North East)
May 12: Stranraer (Scotland)
May 19: Clacton (Eastern region)
May 21: Barking (London)

New for 2022 will be the addition of foreign team in the competition with Global 6 Cycling, who impressed during their Tour of Britain debut in September, will become the first foreign UCI team to compete in the series since its inaugural 2009 season. Three further teams – 05/03, Nopinz Motip Race Team and SRCT Muc-off (the team of World SBK racer Scott Redding) – will compete in the full men’s event for the first time. Both Saint Piran and Team Spectra Wiggle p/b Vitus will field squads in both of the men’s and women’s series.

Twelve of the 13 women’s teams set to line up in Guisborough in May competed in last year’s three-round series; the new-for-2022, Scotland-based Alba Development Road Team are the only debutantes in the women’s event, and will enjoy home support at rounds two (Galashiels, Wednesday 4 May) and four (Stranraer, Thursday 12 May).

Squad lists for each team will be published on next week in the build-up to round one in Guisborough. Owing to demand from teams wishing to compete in the whole six-round Tour Series there will be no guest teams in the 2022 events.

Extensive race day coverage will be available on the series’ digital platforms, with highlights of the series following the night after each round on ITV4.
