There’s some big names on the start list including Alex Dowsett, Mark Cavendish, Bradley Wiggins, Taylor Phinney and Andre Greipel, who will be looking to go head to head with the Manx Missile for a stage or two. It’s a shame there’s no stage coming through the Surrey Hills this year, it was a real blast riding out to see them boss our local climbs over the past couple of years.
