Top teams line up for Tour

The 10th anniversary Tour of Britain will enjoy its biggest ever field, with 114 riders from 19 teams starting the 2013 event in Peebles next month.

Almost half the field will have raced in Grand Tours during the 2013 season, with Tour de France winners Sky Pro Cycling heading the world-class line-up that also includes a further four UCI Pro Teams from the sport’s World Tour.

While a number of teams will be familiar to tour spectators, three teams will make their debuts in Britain’s biggest professional cycle race – IAM Cycling, Madison Genesis and Movistar.
