It looks as though there won’t be any rain around to ruin the day. However, muggy temperatures might make some stretches of the routes slightly more tricky. 

From 7am onwards, there will be plenty of clouds around Birmingham. In addition to this, even at this early time, temperatures will be up in double figures. 

At around 4pm, the high temperature in Birmingham could reach 19C. This will mean that drinking plenty of water will be very important for those taking part.
