TOUR SERIES GRAND FINAL COMES TO MANCHESTER
On Tuesday 24 May Manchester will host the Grand Final stage of the 2022 Tour Series, Britain’s leading cycle race series.
Our city, home of British Cycling, will be looking to continue the success of the memorable 2019 Tour of Britain finale, and will welcome both men’s and women’s champions of the event, now in its 13th year, to be crowned on Tuesday 24 May.
This year's round is new for 2022 round, and will display on a one-kilometre circuit around the Deansgate area, with the start/finish line located next to the Great Northern leisure complex. The one-kilometre Manchester circuit will take riders down Quay Street, turning left onto Lower Byrom Street, before a second left-hander onto Liverpool Road in front of the iconic Science & Industry Museum. The final section of the lap will bring the riders through a fast turn back onto Deansgate for the sprint to the line. Each race will see the riders completing approximately 40 laps of the circuit. You can view a map of the circuit route here.
