The OVO Energy Women’s Tour’s fourth visit to Warwickshire in as many years will be celebrated with Burton Dassett Country Park hosting the first hill-top finish in race history on Thursday 13 June.

Stage four of Britain’s most prestigious women’s race around Shakespeare’s Country will take on a feel similar to that of the Belgian one-day spring classics, as the world’s best riders tackle two laps of a challenging 12.6-kilometre circuit to culminate a spectator-friendly day of racing that begins in the historic town of Warwick.

Whereas the Women’s Tour’s three previous visits to the county – raced into Stratford-upon-Avon (2016) and Royal Leamington Spa (2017 and 2018) – have ended in sprint finishes, this year’s 158.9-kilometre test promises to play a crucial part in deciding who will win the OVO Energy green jersey.
