Tour of Britain 2022: Where to see the race in Nottinghamshire on 8 September

The Tour of Britain returns to familiar terrain on day five as it heads to Nottinghamshire for the first time since 2018.

Stage five will start and finish in the same places – West Bridgford and Mansfield – as it did four years ago, albeit with a different route that takes in Cotgrave, Gedling, Southwell, Retford and Workshop.

Riders will then head into Mansfield via Clumber Park and Sherwood Forest. This will be the only stage of the 2022 Tour with less than 2,000 metres of climbing.

The county has an acclaimed list of stage winners to its name, with former world champion Tom Boonen (2004); Tour de France stage winners Matteo Trentin (2015) and Fernando Gaviria (2017); and British rider Ian Stannard (2018) all previously victorious in Robin Hood Country.
