Tour of britain

On Thursday 11 September ten students from Newton Abbot College had the opportunity to watch Stage 5 of the Tour of Britain Race 2014.   The Tour of Britain is the largest professional cycle race in the country and is free for spectators.  Stage 5 started in Exmouth and ended in Exeter after the 110 mile route took the cyclists through Dartmoor.
