The route has been officially revealed this morning and the cyclists will be arriving on the Yorkshire Coast on Saturday, May 4.

Fans are sure to turn out again in their thousands to see some of the sport's biggest names when the race passes through on stage four, a 175km route between Halifax and Leeds on Sunday, May 5.

"The council is also proud to announce that it has secured its long-term involvement in the Tour de Yorkshire for a further three years - guaranteeing a stage start or finish in the area until 2022".

Among the favourites in September will be the previous Tour de Yorkshire victor and 2015 world champion Lizzie Deignan, who has described the circuit as "very hard, very good, with lots of places to launch attacks".

Next year's Tour de Yorkshire at the beginning of May will offer male and female riders what is likely to be their only chance to race on the circuit that will be used for the road race world championsips in Harrogate five months later.

Putin "stressed the need to ensure stability along the line separating Israel and Lebanon", the Russian embassy in Israel said. In October, Moscow said it had delivered S-300 surface-to-air missiles to Syria, where Israel has struck Iranian targets.

Additionally, an intermediate sprint has been located in Parliament Street in Harrogate where the world championship finish line will be located, enabling a racing insight into what will be required.

A stage of every race since the event started in 2015 has been held in Scarborough, and next year will see the third stage finishing on the seafront.

The full route covers 617.5km of roads, two National Parks and 150 towns and villages from all four corners of the county.

More than 2.6 million spectators turned in over four days to watch the 2018 edition of the Tour de Yorkshire, providing a £98m boost to the region's economy, in a record-breaking year for the event.
