the organisers will use at least 2 if not 3 radio channels.

Motorcycles maybe using - 446.08125 + 85.4

Main radio system linked to control room will use ANDROMEDA which is an airways type system using EE and O2 networks.
Ill post more as soon as I get it .

Also look for a helicopter or light aircraft circling above the area. As they often use aircraft to act as a nice high radio repeater platform. You may get the uplink if you are close, but the downlink will be potentially heard over several counties. Especially with the Cambridgeshire topography.

Tour of Cambridge is not in the same league as the Tour de Yorkshire and using light aircraft for radio signal bouncing is unlikely . where aircarft were used On the TdeY it was perdominately for live TV coverage.
Cambridge is very low budget and not even inteded for main stream TV , might hit web based specialist channels.

Radios used today are Andromedia ( EE & o2 ) and a VHF hire frequency for stewards . The race are also using UHF 449mhz ( one of the UK light ones ). all of it goes through a control centre that oversees it.

I'm working on it and trust me theres nothing to hear !
