Yorkshire puddings on a string and serving burgers to riders during the race - just two ways fans at the Tour de Yorkshire got into the spirit of things

The climb of Robin Hood’s Bay was a crucial point for those riders at the front of stage three of the Tour de Yorkshire, but for those at the back it was a place to have a bit of fun.

Cycling Weekly reader Kris was at the foot of the climb to snap the riders enjoying themselves with a few extra temptations as well.

Dimension Data‘s former Team Sky rider Bernie Eisel stopped on the climb to fill up on some alternative race food – a beef burger, even taking the time to request some sauce to go with it.

Then there was the giant Yorkshire pudding on a string that dangled over the peloton. which some hungry riders tried to take a bite of.

One Direct Energie rider tried his best to reach the tasty morsel, and Team Sky’s Peter Kennaugh looked excited by the prospect.

And Eisel wasn’t the only one to stop for an impromptu feed station at the barbecue, with the Team Wiggins support vehicles also pulling over for some sustenance.

    My dog ate one of those puddings which he found in the road on the way back down the hill. I think he appreciated it more than the riders!
