FOR proof of Team Yorkshire at its very best, look no further than the county’s four-day cycling race which begins today.

The size and scope of the Tour de Yorkshire has increased markedly since the inaugural race was first held in 2015 in the wake 
of the most spectacular Grand Départ in Tour de France history.

Now expanded to four days, it regularly attracts many of the world’s top cyclists – Mark Cavendish is this year’s headline act – and includes a two day women’s race to champion the 
sport’s diversity.

However the event is made by the collective effort of citizens, communities and councils pulling together so cyclists receive a welcome like no other, and, just as crucially, getting behind the army of volunteers – and many members of the emergency services – whose professionalism will ensure that the 2018 Tour de Yorkshire is another sporting success story 
that showcases the best 
of this county to the watching world.
