Top-level road racing returns to Surrey once again after the Olympic Games road race in July, with the 2012 Tour of Britain’s final stage from Reigate to Guildford.

The route avoids Olympic road race flashpoint of Box Hill, but instead takes in the highest point in Surrey – Leith Hill – plus a trip up and down Barhatch Lane.

The quartet of climbs in the centre of the race will likely have little affect on the finale, with plenty of time for any break to be caught before the line in the picturesque centre of Guildford.
