The finish will again be outside Mansfield’s Civic Centre, however it will be approached from the opposite direction to which Team Sky rider Ian Stannard approached it en route to a memorable solo victory four years ago.

Stage five will start and finish in the same places – West Bridgford and Mansfield – as it did in 2018, albeit with a different route that takes in Cotgrave, Gedling, Southwell, Retford and Worksop.

Riders will then head into Mansfield via Clumber Park and Sherwood Forest.
