The Tour of Britain 2021 has now finished, and Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling team sure put on a show for UK cycling fans. James Shaw yet again showed that he deserves the chance to ride at the very highest levels of cycling when he finished 14th overall. In doing so, he beat some very formidable riders from World Tour teams in finishing as the highest placed rider from outside the world’s premier racing teams.
The Tour of Britain allows UK cycling fans to see their heroes made real. To experience the searing speed and savour the thrill of professional road racing at its finest. The Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling team made its debut at this year’s race and built upon its incredible results at the recent Tour of Norway and Tour of Slovenia, where two top 5 finishes declared to the cycling world that this is a team that should never be underestimated.
The 2021 edition of the Tour of Britain was one of the best yet. Riders contested the victory over 8 days of gruelling racing along the length of the UK. The route started in Penzance and measured 1320km in total. With 20,000m (65616.8ft in old money) of climbing thrown in for good measure, before the grand finale in Aberdeen.
Many of the World Tour riders used the race as a pre-World Championship tune-up as Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling battled it out with the biggest names in cycling. Riders of the pedigree of Julian Alaphilippe, Wout Van Aert, and Can to name but a few.
Ribble Weldtite lined up for the opening stage of the 2021 Tour of Britain looking very resplendent in their new tour edition splatter kit. Without a doubt the best kit in the peloton. Ribble Weldtite’s team that lined up for the Tour of Britain was a perfect blend of youth and experience and they delivered in style, inspiring fans across the country from Penzance to Aberdeen and beyond.
