Details of the 2017 Orro Tour of Sussex announced

Orro Bikes and Three Sixty LTD have announced that the fifth annual Orro Tour of Sussex will take place in July.

The event – which is one of the largest multiple-day stage cycling events in the UK – will return to the shoreline of Sussex on July 6th.

Race director John Powell is expecting “an intense battle for the yellow and green jerseys, especially as participant numbers are set to increase from 60 riders (15 teams) to 80 riders (20 teams). The route alone is challenging; provisionally it’s looking like Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit, Beachyhead, Ashdown Forest and Ditchling Beacon.”

Newly established spectator areas will be constructed on the vast route, and visitors can watch each of the five stages unfold between the initial date on the July 6th and July 9th from these safe locations.

More information on the event and how to enter will be available from the official website here
