The UK’s largest free to attend sporting event starts today. And those in the know, know that this sporting event is cycling’s very own Tour of Britain.

This year sees the event start in Rochdale and eight days later, it will roll into London at the new finish location in the Olympic and Para Olympic Borough of Newham, Newham Dockside.

Yesterday the pre-race press conference took place at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton. In attendance were Geraint Thomas (Team Sky), Richie Porte (Team Saxo Bank), Cameron Meyer (Team Garmin Transitions), and Mark Renshaw (Team HTC-Columbia). Here is a video from the press conference:
