RACE ORGANISER Mick Bennett described last year's Devon Stage of the Tour of Britain as "the greatest day in the history of the race" – it saw cloudless skies and record crowds cheering on home-grown winner Jonathan Tiernan-Locke between Barnstaple and Dartmouth.
But tomorrow's Stage Six, from Sidmouth to the Tour's first-ever summit finish at Haytor, could top even Locke's day to remember.
Police gave up trying to estimate an exact figure for the hundreds of thousands of people who lined the route 12 months ago.
It will be the same tomorrow, if not busier, with fans from all over the South-West descending on the 137 kilometres from Sidmouth, through Honiton, Tiverton, Exeter, Starcross, Chudleigh, the Teign Valley, Moretonhampstead, Bovey Tracey and up to Haytor.
The key points will be the three Intermediate Sprints at Tiverton (Blundell's School), Exeter High Street and Chudleigh, and the four King Of The Mountains points.
That's where the all-important action will take place, very probably deciding the overall winner of the race.
The KOM's are at Exeter (Pennsylvania Road) then three in South Devon – Mamhead, Six-Mile Hill at Dunsford and the biggest of the lot, Haytor.
Six-Mile Hill is NOT what many people think – it's a short, sharp 1-in-6 'nip' which lasts for nearly half-a-mile near Dunsford on the Exeter-Moretonhampstead road (B3212).
The riders then tackle the three-mile climb to Doccombe, above Moretonhampstead.
Many supporters will try and catch the race at two points, with the favourite spots likely to be the top of the Starcross-Mamhead climb and then the final ascent to Haytor.
But if last year's route across Dartmoor is anything to go by, or the 2011 climb to Haytor which fell in the middle of the Devon stage then, getting around could be tricky.
With 114 riders and more than 60 team, official vehicles and motorcyclists accompanying the race, here are some key points to remember:
ETA's – Mamhead 13.15, Chudleigh 13.30, Six-Mile Hill (Dunsford) 14.02, Moretonhampstead 14.12, Haytor 14.30.
Rolling Road Closure – Moreton-Bovey Tracey 14.00 approx until race passes through.
Road Closure – Bovey Tracey to Haytor 21.00 tonight to 19.30 tomorrow.
No Parking – Haytor Carparks (all day today to 19.30 tomorrow); Roads from Ilsington and Green Lane to the Haytor Road (B3387) from 21.00 tonight to 16.00 tomorrow; Cold East Cross on Dartmoor to junction with A383 05.00-16.00 and ONE-WAY traffic (southbound) 14.30-16.00 tomorrow.
Whether you're travelling to your chosen spot by car or bike, get there early – and good luck!
