Le Tour de Yorkshire 2018 route is unveiled

Tour de Yorkshire 2018 route
The Tour de Yorkshire's star continues to rise, with Yorkshire's biggest annual sporting event returning to the Yorkshire Coast and North York Moors this spring. What's more, two local newcomers will make their big race debuts in 2018; Richmond in North Yorkshire gets its maiden taste of Tour mania, while Filey welcomes top class cycling action to its streets for the first time, during the Market Towns stage on day 3. Scarborough will proudly host a stage finish once more, the first and only town to do so in every edition of the TDY since its inaugural race in 2015.

2018 sees the Tour extended to four days, between Thursday 3 and Sunday 6 May.

To cement the Tour de Yorkshire's burgeoning reputation, the women's race will also double in length this year, becoming a two day event that takes place on Thursday 3 and Friday 4 May.
