Now in its seventh season, the event attracts thousands of people to watch the fast-paced action and highlights will be shown on ITV4 the following evening. Up to ten teams will battle it out for the overall title and to be crowned the fastest and best team in Britain.
Motherwell is to host Round 4 of the Pearl Izumi Tour Series 2015, bringing Britain’s top professional cycling teams to our town on May 26th.
