Felixstowe will host the start and finish of stage five on Thursday 7 September, with over 100 of the world’s best riders set to tackle a route that will weave through Babergh and Mid Suffolk, the heart of the county’s countryside. Kesgrave, Hadleigh, Needham Market, Stowmarket, Framlingham, Leiston, and Woodbridge will all feature.

The battle for the all-important stage victory will take place on Sea Road, in the shadows of Felixstowe’s pier and world-famous port, in front of an estimated 10,000 spectators.

To amplify the anticipation surrounding the reveal, a social media teaser campaign has been running throughout the week. The majestic Orwell Bridge, historic Framlingham Castle, and an Apache helicopter at Wattisham Airbase have featured, all with race-related imagery projected onto them.
