All-Wales Stage, Sunday 2nd September 2018
Organisers of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain Cycle Race, are running a competition to look for the best and most eye-catching land art alongside the route of this year’s event.
Community groups, schools, businesses and land owners are invited to take part in the competition and we would love to see installations along the Powys stretch of the route captured on film during the live TV coverage of the race on ITV4 – and possibly even a winning entry!
“We are delighted to be adding this land art competition to the ways that communities across the country can get involved in the race this September,” said OVO Energy Tour of Britain Race Director Mick Bennett.
“Last year’s Nottinghamshire stage in particular saw several fantastic examples of land art created by community groups, and this has inspired us to encourage people across the route this year to show their support and get creative.”
The winner will receive a trophy and commemorative Tour of Britain prizes, with trophies for second and third places too.
The all-Wales opening stage of this year’s race runs between Pembrey and Newport, coming into Powys along the A40 at Trecastle, through Sennybridge, via the A4215 to Defynnog and along the A470 via Libanus and on to Brecon following the B4601. The route leaves Brecon and heads along the B4558 to Pencelli, Talybont, Llangynidr and Llangattack before heading off towards Abergavenny.
