Seven day round-up: Shimano 105 groupset, Tour of Britain route & more

The best of the last week on RCUK

The route for the 2014 Tour of Britain has been unveiled

The route for this year’s Tour of Britain, the first since the race was recognised as a 2.HC race, has been unveiled.

Opening with a city centre circuit in Liverpool, the race includes its toughest-ever summit finish on the Tumble, Swansea, and a split-stage in London with an individual time trial and a criterium on the final day.

As part of the upgrade in status, however, strict rules must be adhered to – including shorter transfers between stages.

We caught up with race director Mick Bennett, and you can read his stage-by-stage analysis by following this link.
