From the editor

It’s been quite a year for the Tanfield family. Earlier in the 2018, younger brother Charlie rode some of the fastest individual pursuit times in history either side of winning the team pursuit title as part of the Great Britain team, despite not being a full-time funded member of the British squad (watch this space, announcement on that expected any day). One of those pursuits landed him a Commonwealth Games gold medal.

Harry, the older brother at the ripe old age of 23, clearly wanted some of the action so took a stunning victory in Doncaster last week.

Part of the five-man break on stage one of the Tour de Yorkshire, few were expecting them to contest the finish. Four Brits on Continental ranked teams, with an American rider for company, were being chased down by the WorldTour squads. The break had ‘doomed’ written all over it.

But the small group held on and Tanfield became the first Briton to win a stage of the race — and he’s a Yorkshireman to boot.

Such a start, along with perfect weather, brought incredible crowds out on every stage — once again leaving the riders inspired by their time in Yorkshire.
