We are delighted to share images of Steve Cummings receiving the winner’s trophy for the Tour of Britain this week. The overall winner’s award was sponsored by Cumbria Crystal and was blown by Dave Sharp and Steve Brettle and engraved by apprentice Charlotte Hudson.
As the Tour of Britain cycles headlong into the dramatic final weekend we take a quick look back at the week so far.
The most famous cyclists from across the world will gather in Glasgow to kick-off the Tour of Britain this Sunday. Mark Cavendish, André Griepel, Rohan Dennis and many more cyclists across twenty teams, will embark upon the eight stage race. The tour will end with a thrilling climax in the heart of central London.
This years’ race has more than just a hint of Cumbrian tradition attached to it. Not only will the county host the second stage of the race, from Carlisle to Kendal but Cumbria Crystal has been chosen to supply the winner’s trophy. The hand-crafted glass bowl will be awarded to the winner after the final stage on Sunday the 11th of September.
