Details

Powys will host the toughest-ever stage in OVO Energy Women’s Tour history as the race returns to Wales with Stage 5 passing through Dolfor (just north of Newtown). The world’s best riders will tackle an arduous stage between The Lake at Llandrindod and the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells on day five of the 2019 edition.


The 140-kilometre (87-mile) route through Powys, the first time the county has welcomed the Women’s Tour, will start at 10:30 and take in Knighton (11:28), Dolfor (12:08), Rhayader (12:50) and Upper Chapel (north of Brecon). It will feature the SKODA Queen of the Mountains climbs of Gorddwr Bank (11.59 - on the B4355) and Pennau (13:29) along its unrelenting course. The stage passes through Builth Wells from 14:01, with the finish at the Showground shortly afterwards. All times are the earliest ETAs.

The total elevation gain of 2,206 metres makes stage five of this year’s race the hardest in the event’s history.
