Jersey will host the final round of the 2014 Pearl Izumi Tour Series on Friday 13th June.

The official launch of Jersey's round of the 2014 Pearl Izumi Tour Series takes place on Friday 27th September. The launch is being held in Jersey, which first time will be staging one of the races. It’s a double honour for the island, for the race, at St Helier on Friday 13th June 2014, marks the finale of this prestigious series.

The Pearl Izumi Tour Series is Britain’s premier cycling event, bringing the thrills, spills and excitement of televised professional cycling to venues across the UK each year. The finale in Jersey will be followed by a weekend of cycle races and related activities, cementing the island’s growing reputation as a cycling destination.

The successful bid to bring The Pearl Izumi Tour Series to Jersey was fronted by Nigel Mansell CBE. Nigel, a Jersey resident, has switched from racing on four wheels to two. He’s Team Owner of UK Youth, the hugely successful team that won the 2013 Pearl Izumi Tour Series and featured in the recent Tour of Britain.
