Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils have agreed a two-year deal to host stages of the Tour of Britain cycling race in the Scottish region for the first time.

The agreement with Tour organiser SweetSpot will begin with the final stage of next year’s race on September 13. Building on the success of the Tour Series, which has taken place in Aberdeen since 2017, the Tour of Britain will also host its 2021 Grand Depart in the region.
