As part of Carmarthenshire’s stage of OVO Energy Tour of Britain celebrations, Children are being asked to design a cycling jersey.
The winning jersey design will be created into a physical jersey and presented to all Welsh riders as they kick off the first leg of Britain’s biggest professional cycle race at Pembrey Country Park this September.
About the Cycle Tour
The OVO Energy Tour of Britain will be the first time that Britain’s biggest professional cycle race has visited Carmarthenshire. The race will have 120 riders from some of the world’s best teams competing in it, including Olympic and World Champions and Tour de France stage winners.
The cyclists will leave Pembrey Country Park and then continue throughout the Carmarthenshire passing through Kidwelly, Carmarthen, Ffairfach and Llandovery as it continues into the Brecon Beacons through to its stage finish in Newport city centre. There will be daily live coverage of this event on ITV4 and Eurosport in the UK, and around the world.
Councillor Peter Hughes Griffiths, Carmarthenshire County Council’s Executive Board Member for Culture, Sport and Tourism, said: “This is a great chance for children to get creative and at the same time be involved in the celebrations. The lucky winner will have the chance to meet and greet the Welsh riders ahead of the race on the day which is a fantastic opportunity.”
How to Enter the Competition
This competition is open to children 16 and under. The drawing must be on A4 paper and be in landscape orientation. The winner will also meet the Welsh riders before they make their grand depart on the Sunday.
