On 30 April 2017, 4,000 cy­clists took part in the third edi­tion of the Maserati Tour de York­shire Ride. Am­a­teur cy­clists rode across 45km, 75km and 100km routes along tons of steep and wind­ing roads that the Tour de York­shire pro ride was com­pet­ing on later that day. Bel­gian’s Team Di­men­sion Data Serge Pauwels won the leg of the race.

For the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year, par­tic­i­pants were greeted with warm weather and dry roads that were beau­ti­fully framed against the sur­round­ing York­shire coun­try­side. The race started in Fox Val­ley Sh­effield and was ar­guably the most chal­leng­ing edi­tion yet. Rid­ers were faced with a sig­nif­i­cant climb at the open­ing 1.5km, be­fore tack­ling a num­ber of fur­ther de­mand­ing as­cents through­out the route. The last 20km of the 100km long route mixed steep hills and tech­ni­cal de­scents, touch­ing base with the north-east­ern edge of the Peak District.

Peter Den­ton, Re­gion Man­ager Maserati North Europe, said: “We’re de­lighted to be in­volved with the Tour de York­shire Ride for a third con­sec­u­tive year and we are al­ready look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing rid­ers to the 2018 edi­tion in 12 months’ time. The ride routes provided their own unique chal­lenges this year but only added to the sense of achieve­ment for ev­ery rider that crossed the fin­ish line.”
