The Tour of Britain has announced that it will return to the country of Devon in the 2020 edition of the race.

The organisation of the British race had already confirmed that Cornwall will host the Grand Depart of the race on Sunday 6 of September of 2020. The next day, September 7, the race will go to the country of Devon, which will feature in the race for the 11th time.

"We’re thrilled to be hosting another stage of The Tour," said Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council Cabinet Member with responsibility for cycling. "Crowds in Devon are among the most passionate and supportive in this race and I’m sure they’ll do us proud again in 2020. Devon made history as the first stage of the Tour of Britain to host a summit finish when the race celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2013, and we were the first stage to race through a building when the 2018 stage went through South Molton Pannier Market, and I’m sure we’ll have another exciting stage in prospect next year.

"With next year’s Tour starting in our neighbouring county of Cornwall, it should be another spectacular Tour for our county. To give the riders and spectators two days in our region by racing through Devon as well as Cornwall has the potential for a big economic boost for our region and it’s always a great opportunity to showcase Devon as a premier destination for cycling tourism."

Tour of Britain director Mick Bennett is pleased with the news. "We are delighted to confirm the return of Devon to the Tour of Britain route in September 2020," he commented. "The early announcement of our South West stages will contribute to making next year’s race bigger and better than ever before and allow fans from across the UK to begin planning their trip to the opening weekend of the race."
