The Tour de Yorkshire 2020 route to be revealed

  • The route for this year's Tour de Yorkshire will be revealed on Friday (17 January).
  • We already know that Skipton will be a host town, during the four-day event in April.
  • Harrogate, though, has ruled itself out of the running - claiming it needs a breaking from major cycling events.
  • The full route will be unveiled at a press conference in Leeds later.

Organisers of this year's Tour de Yorkshire will unveil the full route today (Friday, 17 January).

We already know Skipton will host a start or finish of any stage of the race.

We're still waiting to find out where else the cyclists will travel to and from during the four-day event which takes place at the end of April.

The Tour de Yorkshire is now a firm part of the cycling event calendar

The sixth edition of the Tour de Yorkshire will take place next year between Thursday 30 April and Sunday 3 May.

It will be a return to Yorkshire for many riders who contested the 2019 World Championships course, with the men’s road race won by Dane Mads Pedersen.

The 2020 Tour de Yorkshire will form part of the inaugural UCI ProSeries, which operates one level below the WorldTour calendar.

Speaking back in  November, Peter Dodd, Commercial Director of Welcome to Yorkshire, said:

“It’s always exciting to unveil the host locations for the Tour de Yorkshire and this year is no exception. We’re delighted Huddersfield, Leyburn, Redcar and Skipton will each be making their debuts as we’re always striving to bring our race to new parts of this great county.

“The other locations have already proven themselves as more-than-worthy recipients and we cannot wait to revisit them as well.”

We'll have the full route of the Tour de Yorkshire 2020 once unveiled in Leeds.
