Tour de Yorkshire Flowers
What a weekend Yorkshire has had. Over 1.2 million spectators helped make the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire an overwhelming success, so says Gary Verity cheif executive of Welcome to Yorkshire and Christian Prudhomme Tour de France director.
Streets all over Yorkshire were decorated in the unmistakable Yellow & Blue of Tour de Yorkshire. It was thrilling to see the pro riders taking to the roads that my cycling brothers have trained and raced on for so many years.
Always proud of my Yorkshire roots we have dedicated this weekend’s floral bouquets to #TdY and its incredible super human riders.
Honours go to Lars Petter Nordhaug of Team SKY, Samuel Sanchez of BMC Racing & Thomas Voeckler of Europcar with Ian Bibby of NFTO taking Digital Jersey for most aggressive rider and Nicolas Edet of Cofidis taking KOM.
