Tour of Britain to pretest '07 Tour route

BBC SPORT | London finale for Tour of Britain

The concluding stage of this fall's Tour of Britain will include a 50-mile stage across London, including 20 laps of St James's Park in front of Buckingham Palace.

Beginning at Greenwich Park, the stage will follow part of the route for next year's Tour de France, and cross Tower Bridge.

It will also echo the proposed route of the road race for the 2012 Olympics over Hampstead Heath then through Regent's Park and Hyde Park on its way down to the final circuits.

The stage is scheduled for September 3rd as the sixth stage of the UCI 2.3-rated Tour of Britain.
