Reaction – Tour of Britain announcement

Today it was confirmed that following detailed consultations with British Cycling, regional stakeholders, sponsors and partners of the race, the Tour of Britain have decided to postpone the forthcoming edition of the Tour of Britain (6-13 September).

This includes the planned final stage in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.

Leader of Aberdeenshire Council Councillor, Jim Gifford, said: “Of course it is disappointing to hear of the postponement of the Tour of Britain, however it feels like the correct decision has been taken in the current circumstances. The team involved in bringing this stage to Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire have been working hard in the background throughout this pandemic to look at the various options and can now begin to focus their efforts on next year.

“I know the communities of Aberdeenshire will be looking forward to the rescheduled date and the global audience will have the chance to see how truly spectacular Aberdeenshire is in 2021.”
