Stage four promises to be one of the toughest days in modern OVO Energy Tour of Britain history, packing in almost 3,000 metres of climbing during its 171.5-kilometre (106-mile) east to west route.
Gateshead is a stone’s throw across the River Tyne from where stage three ended in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, marking shortest distance between a stage finish and subsequent stage start in OVO Energy Tour of Britain history.
The peloton will pass Anthony Gormley’s world-famous Angel of the North sculpture along the day’s route, which heads into County Durham before crossing the Pennines into Cumbria. The Kendal finish, atop the 500-metre, 11% average gradient climb of Beast Banks, has welcomed the OVO Energy Tour of Britain on three previous occasions.
