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.
