REDDITCH welcomes the return of elite professional cycling tomorrow as The Pearl Izumi Tour Series returns to town for the third successive Summer.

More than 50 of Britain's top professional cyclists will be racing around the streets of Redditch, including Olympic Champion Ed Clancy and his Series leading Rapha Condor JLT team, and last year's Redditch winner Tom Scully and his Madison Genesis team.

Clancy's team arrive as Series leaders, eight points in front of Madison Genesis, having taken three team wins already this season, plus a brace of individual wins thanks to Felix English and Graham Briggs.

For the second successive year the Choose How You Move backed event will also include a round of the women's Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series.

Following the women it will be Round Seven of the men's Pearl Izumi Tour Series at 7.30pm, with nine squads of five riders battling it out over 1-hour plus five laps for the team and individual victories.

Highlights of both races will be shown on ITV4 at 9pm on Wednesday, June 4 with a repeat the following morning at 9am.

Support events on Church Green West begin from 1pm onwards, with a Fire Service Parade at 4.15pm before an amateur time trial event around the circuit at 4.30pm.
