The Tour Series, Britain’s biggest cycle race series, will take a one-year hiatus in 2023, organisers SweetSpot have announced.

This decision has been made in light of the most challenging economic climate the series has faced since its inaugural edition in 2009. It has proved impossible to compile a commercially viable calendar of events for the intended series in May owing to the pressures on local authority funding, combined with the wider economic challenges all businesses face.

SweetSpot will use this break to work with British Cycling and partners on plans for the return of the series in 2024 to celebrate its 15th anniversary, complete with a refreshed format and events in Britain’s major cities.
