Kelloggs Tour ol Britain, 29th—3rd, beginning in Dundee and incorporating Perth, Stirling and Glasgow betore it heads tor south ot the border. It this year's Tour de France has conjured another batch ot converts to protessional cycling and an equally committed group who are irritated by the saturation ot commercial sponsorship, then the Kelloggs Tour oi Britain which begins with a Scottish leg between Dundee and Glasgow— will only provide reliet torthe tormer.

Now in its third year, the Keiloggs Tour already compares tavourably with equivalents in Spain, Holland and Italy. However, with It likely to cost over hall a million pounds to stage, the organisers can do little else but actively seek sponsorship and tolerate advertising. A similar compromise applies to teams as well, given that it can cost anything between a quarter ol a million and two million pounds to run a team tor a season, with the more ambitious expenditure associated with those sponsors who wish to target the continental tours and their respective markets.

.3 . ' year’s Tour de France, riding in the colours oi Z-Peugeot, is amongst a star-studded cast already contlrmed tor the event, such as Phil Anderson trom the WM team, Steve Bauer lrom Superconlex and Etienne de Wilde trom Histor.

However, since each team will be limited to live riders, as opposed to the more usual tourteen, there is every reason to suggest that at least one ol the home teams will tigure highly in the linal placings. As promoter Alan Bushton remarks, ‘Because no single team will be able to dictate tactics, say by covering every breakaway, this will mean that there will be good combativlty, a more even contest, and therelore a very exciting spectacle tor the public'.
