The Best Dressed competition honours the communities and individuals that go the extra mile to celebrate the race.  It is split into four categories: Best Dressed Village, Best Dressed Town, Best Dressed Host Location and Spirit of Le Tour. 

After the end of the Tour, a shortlist of the best entries in each category will be drawn up and put to a public vote. The winners will then be invited to the Welcome to Yorkshire headquarters in Leeds to receive their prizes.

Welcome to Yorkshire Chief Executive James Mason said:

“This is the first time I’ve worked on a Tour de Yorkshire, but I’ve watched it with interest ever since it started and have always been blown away by the lengths people go to, to support the race. Every year whole towns and villages are draped in yellow and blue flags, and those giant land art pieces are always spectacular. 

“We organise these competitions to honour those people around the county who go to such great lengths to get behind the race. Last year we had hundreds of entries and thousands of people cast their votes, and I can’t wait to see the submissions for this year’s competitions.”
