Less than a week to until the Tour of Britain gets underway in London this Sunday. The event organisers have now made available the preliminary rider list for all to download from the site.

One major change that has happened in the last few days is that Mark Cavendish will no longer be riding in the event. Instead he will be off to the Tour of Missouri, apparently an important race for his American sponsors – Team Columbia.  His replacement will be Kim Kirchen.

Other changes for the race include: youngster Rhys Lloyd who comes into the Rapha – Condor – Recycling.co.uk line-up to replace Ben Greenwood who broke his leg during the Tour of Ireland. Plus, Tour of Italy stage winner, Gabriele Bosisio will now ride for LPR Brakes – Ballan.
