The Tour of Britain, which starts Sunday September 15 in Peebles, Scotland, will be shown live on both ITV4 and British Eurosport. ITV4 will also screen an hour-long daily highlights program, organisers Sweetspot Group have announced.

Live coverage of the opening stage of The Tour, from Peebles to Drumlanrig Castle will be shown on British Eurosport, with both channels showing live coverage from stages two to eight.

ITV4's live coverage will start with stage two, which takes in Cumbria and the Lake District Monday September 16, in a specially extended two and a half hour programme.

All of ITV4's coverage of The Tour of Britain will also be streamed online via the ITV website and available for 30 days post-broadcast on the ITV Player.

Any chance of the start and finish being listed in your table against each stage?

The race manual is available on the ToB website and gives detailed routes and Cool timings of every stage.
Trying to work out whether I can get away with "attending" a telephone conference with my boss and his boss while watching the race on the Honister Pass !!!!

Please, not Ligget, though. I couldn't stand the repetition, especially telling us how old Quintana is and where he's from. I far prefer the commentary on Eurosport Player. They know when to shut up and when to get excited.
