Sir Bradley Wiggins is to lead Team Sky at this year's Tour of Britain event.

The Olympic champion and winner of last year's Tour De France will be winding through Devon in just 15 days.

Stage six of the race starts in Sidmouth and ends with a gruelling climb up Haytor on Dartmoor. It's estimated it'll bring more than £7 million into the county - as well as showing off Devon to a global television audience.
