Stage 4 of the prestigious Ovo Energy Women’s Tour will end in Burton Dassett on 13 June 2019.
The stage will start in Warwick, pass through the University of Warwick, Kenilworth, Meriden (home to the National Cyclists’ Memorial), Bedworth and Wellesbourne as it gears up for what promises to be an unpredictable finale.
Riders will climb Edge Hill, an OVO Energy Women’s Tour regular, albeit from its south-westerly approach for the first time before beginning the first of three loops of a clockwise finishing circuit around Burton Dassett and Farnborough.
Featuring a gradient of 15% in places, and averaging 4.9%, the 1.7-kilometre climb through Burton Dassett Country Park has split the peloton into several groups during its previous inclusions in the race. The climb was also a SKODA King of the Mountains ascent in last year’s OVO Energy Tour of Britain. In total, stage four of this year’s OVO Energy Women’s Tour includes 1,513m of climbing.
