South Yorkshire to host 2024 Lloyds Bank Tour of Britain Men Stage - including Doncaster

The Lloyds Bank Tour of Britain Men will return to South Yorkshire for the first time in almost 20 years this September, as South Yorkshire gears up to hold the third stage of Britain’s national Tour.

Stage three of the race, on Thursday 5 September, will head from Sheffield to Barnsley, taking in Rotherham and Doncaster during the route. The race last came to South Yorkshire in 2007 when a stage started from Rother Valley Country Park. 

This year will mark the first time that a stage of the Lloyds Bank Tour of Britain Men has started in Sheffield, with the city having hosted stage finishes on three occasions between 2004 and 2006, while for Barnsley it will be a first visit by the Lloyds Bank Tour of Britain Men.

Doncaster Mayor Ros Jones said: ‘We are delighted to be part of such an exciting sporting event, right in the heart of our communities with the Tour of Britain passing through Tickhill, Wadworth, Conisbrough. Denaby, Cadeby and Hooton Pagnell. Being part of such a fantastic event across South Yorkshire gives the opportunity for residents to come together to cheer on cycling at an elite level, as well as inspiring the next generation of local sporting heroes.’

More details of all six stages of the Lloyds Bank Tour of Britain Men, including route maps and detailed timings, will be announced in the coming weeks.
