Tour de Yorkshire host towns map
The host towns for the Tour de Yorkshire 2018, from 3rd to 6th May 2018, were announced by Sir Gary Verity of Welcome to Yorkshire today.
The eight towns and cities will be the locations of the starts or finishes of the four stages. They are:
The Asda Women's Tour de Yorkshire will be two days instead of one, and be held on 3rd & 4th May 2018.
Sir Gary Verity said, 'The Tour de Yorkshire is a true success story and in just three years it has grown to become one of the best attended and most dramatic races on the cycling calendar. Of course, with the men's race being extended to four days, and the women's race now being held over two, it means we can visit more parts of the country and I know our eight start and finish locations will put on a real show.'
Christian Prudhomme of the race organisers ASO said, 'The Tour de Yorkshire has gone from strength to strength over the last three years and we are delighted to be working in partnership with such a great team at Welcome to Yorkshire. The way people get behind the race in Yorkshire is incredible, and we are looking forward to another fantastic edition in 2018.'
2.2 million spectators lined the route in 2017, and it has been calculated that the event benefited the Yorkshire economy by £64 million.
At this stage, no further details have been announced. The stage routes will be made public on Tuesday 5th December 2017.
