Tim­ings for the Tour de York­shire have been un­veiled ahead of the highly an­tic­i­pated race next month.

Mil­lions of spec­ta­tors are ex­pected to line the route for the newly ex­panded four day men’s race and two day women’s race.

The race will fin­ish in Scar­bor­ough again on Satur­day May 5 and the pelo­ton is ex­pected to fin­ish along the seafront on Ma­rine Drive at 5.38pm.

Wel­come to York­shire chief ex­ec­u­tive Sir Gary Ver­ity said: “It’s al­ways ex­cit­ing to share these tim­ings as spec­ta­tors can now plan ex­actly where and when they want to watch the ac­tion. Ev­ery time I see them I’m as­ton­ished by how quickly the pelo­ton trav­els, but these are the very best rid­ers in the world after all!

“Of course, there is a huge amount of added en­ter­tain­ment planned across the county over the full four days, and be sure to line the route early to see the colour­ful race car­a­van and fleet of York­shire cy­cling leg­ends pass through.”

Tim­ings have been cal­cu­lated by an­tic­i­pat­ing the pelo­ton’s aver­age speed but are sub­ject to change de­pend­ing on vari­ables such as wind speed, di­rec­tion and how ag­gres­sively the rid­ers race.

The race car­a­van will also be mak­ing stop-off points where fans will be treated to a host of pro­mo­tional good­ies from the of­fi­cial race part­ners.

The Tour is com­ing to Scar­bor­ough on May 5 – with full tim­ings listed be­low
