The Tour Series and Freewheel.co.uk have today celebrated the two months to go marker until the start of the 2021 event by unveiling the spectacular leaders’ jerseys for this August’s series.

Britain’s leading men’s and women’s teams will battle it out for the right to wear the Freewheel.co.uk leaders’ jerseys upon the series’ return this summer, the first Tour Series rounds to take place since the culmination 2019 event at the historic Brooklands circuit in Surrey over 850 days ago. The eye-catching yellow jerseys, which will be worn by all five members of the leading teams, are being created by series partners PEARL iZUMi.

While the series’ team format remains innovative and unique in the sport of cycling, individual riders will still get a chance to get their name in the lights, in part courtesy of the Freewheel.co.uk sprints competition. The male and female rider who accumulates the most points at the intermediate sprints after each rounds will be presented with a new-look, pale blue Freewheel.co.uk-branded sprints jersey.
