Despite its young age, the race has already established itself as Britain’s second biggest stage race behind only the Tour of Britain.

For 2018, it’s grown from a three-day men’s and one-day women’s race to four and two days respectively.

The race has proved a hit with large crowds flocking to the roadsides, and plenty of exciting racing over Yorkshire’s terrain.

The challenging landscape and local support mean that Yorkshire has also been selected to host the 2019 UCI Road World Championships.

In 2017, Dimension Data rider Serge Pauwels took the overall win of the men’s race and Boels-Dolmans’ Lizzie Deignan won the women’s addition.
