The riders will face a challenging first stage which includes three categorised climbs in the final 60 kilometres. Stage one will see the peloton cover a total distance of 147.7 kilometres, with a total elevation of 1,264 meters. With two ascents of the Sibford Ferris climb close to the finish, it could be a day for the punchers.
