Leamington Editorial 2nd Apr, 2019   0

A STAGE of this year’s OVO Energy Women’s Tour will finish on a high in Warwickshire.

The race, featuring many of the world’s best women riders, will celebrate its fourth visit to Warwickshire in as many years

with Burton Dassett Country Park hosting the first hill-top finish in race history on Thursday June 13.

The 159-kilometre stage four will start in Warwick, and will take in Kenilworth, Meriden, Bedworth and Wellesbourne before riders gear up for finale at Burton Dassett, which has featured as part of previous stages in Warwickshire.

Warwickshire County Council chief executive Monica Fogarty, said: “I am thrilled that Warwickshire will once again be hosting a stage of the OVO Energy Women’s Tour. As well as being fantastic entertainment for spectators, this event is of huge economic benefit to the region.

“It’s an opportunity for local businesses along the route to celebrate and embrace cycling as the race comes past their front door, as well as for others to maximise on business opportunities from increased customers and visitors.

“As in previous years, we are working to ensure that spectators can watch the race from multiple spots throughout the day. Each year, the response from local people is phenomenal, with businesses and schools coming out to watch, all adding to the great atmosphere.”
