Women's Tour 2019: Route and stages

Another tough edition of the Women's Tour is store for this year's peloton. A mixture of rolling stages, sprint days and even a Belgian-style Kermesse will decide the sixth winner of this race that has always managed to attract some of the world's best riders.

Stage 2 at the Kent Cyclopark in Gravesend should provide the best spectacle. 

The peloton will navigate the exposed 2km circuit over 20 times meaning spectators will get the best bang for their buck when it comes to getting up close and personal with the race.

The decisive day on General Classification should be Stage 5, the 140km stage from Llandrindod Wells to Builth Wells.

It's consistently hilly with 2,200m of elevation and should provide a perfect launch pad for those looking to take overall honours. 

Stage 1: Beccles to Stowmarket, 157.6km

Stage 2: Kent Cyclopark to Kent Cyclopark, 62.5km

Stage 3: Henley-on-Thames to Blenheim Palace, 145.1km

Stage 4: Warwick to Burton Dassett, 158.9km

Stage 5: Llandrindod Wells to Builth Wells, 140km
