A NEW website has been launched to make sure cycling fans have the very best online experience of the Tour de Yorkshire.

The new site at letouryorkshire.com will mean faster access to all the race essentials including route maps, rider information, and the best places to watch the action in person.

It also houses an archive section which includes full details of all the previous editions -as well as the 2014 Tour de France Grand Départ – along with a brand-new, user-friendly search facility.

Four million people currently access the site each year and the new design should mean a much smoother experience for all.

During the race itself users will be able to keep up to date with the action thanks to a one-stop area on the home page which will feature all the latest race information.
