Scene of last year’s Grand Final and the 100th round in OVO Energy Tour Series history, Britain’s leading men’s and women’s teams return to the historic city of Salisbury on Thursday.

Once again, the country’s top domestic riders will tackle a stunning 1.3-kilometre circuit around the Cathedral City centred around Market Place and Guildhall Square. 

We can expect a repeat of last year’s men’s showdown between Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes and Madison Genesis, which went down to the finishing sprint, as the 2019 title battle heats up.

Meanwhile, Brother UK – Tifosi p/b OnForm moved closer to their first Tour Series crown in Birkenhead on Tuesday but require a freak result to seal victory prior to our Grand Final at Brooklands on Saturday
