The remaining teams for the Tour of Britain have been selected,

The final three teams for the 2016 Tour of Britain have been announced, with JLT Condor, Madison Genesis and NFTO adding to the list of British teams in the race.

The last remaining spots are traditionally allocated to the best-performing continental teams from the UK, judged from their performances in both the domestic elite racing events as well as the UCI-ranked events such as the Tour de Yorkshire and this weekend's Prudential RideLondon - Surrey Classic. 

Team Wiggins, another continental team from the UK that's headlined by Sir Bradley Wiggins, was already assured of its place by nature of being the highest placed domestic team last year, when Owain Doull finished third overall and won the points competition.

The four continental teams join One Pro Cycling, Team Sky and a composite Great Britain National team to bring the total number of British teams at the race to seven. A record number of 10 WorldTour teams will be in the race this year, which runs from the 4th to 11th of September.
