Welcome to Yorkshire Chief Executive Sir Gary Verity said:

“The demand from teams looking to compete in the Tour de Yorkshire is always high and that reflects the esteem in which our race is regarded.

Reducing the number of riders per team from eight to seven in the men’s event meant we could invite more squads than ever before, and we also upped the number of women’s teams from 18 to 20 to ensure parity.  

Having the best teams in the business coming to Yorkshire is a massive coup and we’re delighted to have a record number of British-based teams pitting themselves against the world’s finest riders.    

Teams want to compete at the Tour de Yorkshire as they know they will be guaranteed massive crowds, exciting racing and an electric atmosphere.

Last year 2.2 million spectators lined the route and the fourth edition promises to be the biggest and best one yet.”
