Tour of Britain to visit Hatherleigh
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

May 5, 2009: Breaking news, as they say! Hatherleigh will be well and truly on the map come September 18th when the seventh and penultimate stage of the new Tour of Britain race starts from Hatherleigh. The day before, the 6th stage sees the peloton travel from Frome to Bideford. An overnight stop is presumably involved and the Hatherleigh stage will start from the town centre and go via Okehampton to Yeovil. The final and 8th stage will take place in London on the 19th. Hundreds of people are involved in these things, what with the riders, their crews and support staff. ITV will cover every stage so the publicity value for Hatherleigh will be high, not to mention the business possibilities. More when we get it. Meanwhile you can find confirmation at this web page.
