WITH less than one month to go until the 2019 Tour de Yorkshire, the race timings have now been revealed.

Millions of spectators are expected to line the route over the four days of action which will see cyclists race through the county from May 2.

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.

Welcome to Yorkshire commercial director Peter Dodd said: “It’s always exciting to share these timings as spectators can now plan exactly where and when they want to watch the race.

"Every time we see them we’re astonished by how quickly the peloton travels, but these are the best riders in the world after all."

The Northern Echo:

The race will enter North Yorkshire on the second day which is when the women's race also starts.

The women will sprint in Harrogate at 11.28am before the peloton passes through Ripon at 12.02pm, then it’s on to Bedale for a scheduled finish at 12.43pm.

The men's sprint in Harrogate will be at 4.50pm and the stage continues north through Ripon at 5.20pm and into Bedale for an expected bunch sprint in the centre of town at 5.55pm.
