After the huge success of the Tour de France Grand Depart in 2014 few would have dared believe the county would continue to host a prestigious cycle race year on year.
But here we are, the Tour de Yorkshire is bigger and better than ever, and once again Leeds has been chosen as the final destination.
Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme said: “I enjoy coming to Yorkshire and the county always puts on a tremendous show. Seeing the race finish on The Headrow in Leeds will be particularly special and bring back a lot of happy memories.” Well done to all those who help make this happen. Our city will do the county proud.
