Tour de Yorkshire 2019The fith edition of this Yorkshire road bike sportive is just weeks away; further growing and succeeding as a recognised UCI event. Last year, Greg Van Avermaet secured overall victory in the Tour de Yorkshire, winning general classification, points clarification and team classification (BMC). Stéphane Rossetto was KOM winner, with Megan Guarnier (Boels - Dolmans Cycling Team) led the Cow and Calf climb in Illkely and took the reigning champ title for the women's TDY. The Tour de Yorkshire was created in 2015 as a legacy event from the Tour de France’s Grand Départ in the county in 2014 – and Yorkshire has also been selected to host the 2019 UCI Road World Championships.

The 3rd edition of this famous Tour de Yorkshire will commence in just 10 days! Accumulating a total of 304 miles over 3 stages (1 a day) and this year, riders get to experience all 4 corners of the county - including previous Tour de France routes. With teams and riders announced, you can expect a spectating audience of approximately 2 million people. Here's how it works: Stage 1: 173 km, 3 climbs and 2 sprints Beginning at Bridlington Spa, riders will head to Poklington for the first of the stages intense sprint. And if that wasn't hard enough, it's straight into the first 2 King of the Mountain climbs (Cote de Garrowby Hill & Cote de Goathland), before a 'leisurely' coastal pedal to recuperate the legs before 1 more wee climb, into the final sprint into Scarborough for the legendary finish along the North Bay. Stage 2: 122.5km, 1 climb and 2 sprints Slightly less gruelling than stage 1, but don't let your guard down! Men and women will face the exact same stage - starting in Tadcaster. The first sprint is up for grabs at Knaresborough. The only climb of the stage takes place on Cote de Lofthouse, leading to Ripon for the last stage sprint; which leads to Harrogate (Parliament Street), where all the action will happen. Stage 3: 194.5km, 8 climns and 2 sprints. Aw mann, this hurts to read, never mind tackling it! The start line briefly joins the 2014 Tour de France route at Burley -in -Wharfedale before heading into the famous Yorkshire Dales. The first of 8 climbs begins in the town of Skipton, second on the cobbled terrain up Haworth's main street - leading to climbs 3 and 4 taking them to Cote de Shibden Wall. This will certainly crack the initial foundation of the rider peloton, so there's one last sprint before a torturous 22km of constant climbs - eventually finishing at Fox Valley.
