Tour de Yorkshire a great success

The Tour de Yorkshire seems to be a great success. An estimated 1.5 million spectators lined the roads. You don’t see those crowds when watching monuments like Liege Bastogne Liege. Despite numbers of spectators they seem very well (compared to Tour de France standards)

The lumpy terrain of Yorkshire provided interesting racing on all three days.

The scenery is great.

Some photos from Stage Three

East Chevin 30 mins before the race arrived. It was packed with people. The sun turned to rain when the riders arrived.
