The Devon Stage will be Stage 6 of The Tour 2016 and will cover around 150 km of the county. Starting at Sidmouth, it will travel through the Devon countryside before entering the National Park near Whiddon Down, then onto Moretonhampstead, Chudleigh and Bovey Tracey before a gruelling hill climb up Haytor to the summit finish. The provisional finish time (subject to change!) is around 2.30pm / 3.00pm at Haytor. Wherever you are planning to watch the race, our advice is plan ahead and get there early. Large crowds are expected to watch the summit finish at Haytor and we are currently planning events and activities that should mean visitors have a great day. There will be fixed road closures in place at Haytor in addition to the rolling road closures as the race progresses. Roads are closed to ALL traffic in advance of the arrival of the race to enable support vehicles and over 100 cyclists to pass through uninterrupted from non race traffic. So, if you are thinking of coming to watch at the finish, you could cycle up to Haytor (if you are up to the challenge!) or alternatively use designated park and ride facilities. Please note all timings are approximate. For more information, including information on planned road closures, route changes or timing updates visit southwesttourofbritain.co.uk
