Tour of Britain returned to Caerphilly for a spectacular finale
A Champion was crowned at the final stage of the Tour of Britain after a 166km journey from Margam Park to Caerphilly Town Centre on Sunday 10th September.
Live on ITV4 and broadcast to more than 150 countries across the globe, the world’s best riders passed through Nelson, Tredomen, Ystrad Mynach and Llanbradach before reaching Caerphilly Town Centre. The largest road cycling race in Britain came to a spectacular finish in front of the Caerphilly Castle.
Caerphilly town was filled with flags, banners and signs as thousands of residents and visitors turned out in force to support the cyclists. Voices of race commentators and high-energy music filled the air as everyone got into the spirit.
Crowds also gathered on Caerphilly Mountain creating an electric atmosphere as riders made two laps of the legendary Caerphilly Mountain climb.
Cllr Sean Morgan, Leader of Caerphilly Council, said: “It was fantastic to see so many people line the streets of Caerphilly and support the event and cyclists. The magnificent backdrop of the Caerphilly Castle provided a spectacular setting for the riders to cross the finish line especially after tackling the gruelling Caerphilly Mountain climb.
I’d like to thank everyone involved for making the event a success and helping put Caerphilly on the map for an international audience”.
