The OVO Energy Women’s Tour will cover new ground in 2018, as the race visits Wales for the first time in its history. Dolgellau will host the start of Stage Five, a potentially decisive day in the battle for the OVO Energy Green Jersey, one that finishes in Colwyn Bay 122 kilometres later.

Wales has hosted the OVO Energy Tour of Britain in nine different years since its relaunch in 2004; many roads that have appeared in that race will be tackled by the best female professionals in the world on 17 June. Riders will head through Snowdonia National Park during this stage, set entirely in Gwynedd and Conwy, which finishes on Colwyn Bay’s Promenade.
