Headline sponsor for 2018 International Tour of the North
5th February 2018
We are delighted to announce that Dixons will be the headline sponsor for the 2018 Tour of the North, Northern Ireland’s premier cycle stage race. After providing vehicles for last year’s race we were very keen to become more involved with the international cycle race and are delighted to become main sponsor. The race was first run in 1955, with past participants including Tour de France legends Stephen Roche, Stan Britton and Sean Kelly, with Kelly overall winner of the Tour of the North in 1976.
The Tour of the North race is open to teams of 3, 4 or 5 riders, with teams from all over Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales and continental Europe expected to be represented. The 4 stage, 3 day race takes place over Easter weekend, with the first stage kicking off on Saturday 31st March. The race route is currently being finalised and it looks set to be an epic test for the 120 competitors!
