Tour De Yorkshire 2018: Mark Cavendish To Compete In Four-Day Race

Mark Cavendish has handed the organisers of the Tour de Yorkshire a huge boost by announcing that he will ride in next year's edition, which runs from May 4-6.

Cavendish, 32, who has won 30 stages of the Tour de France, will tackle routes from Beverley to Doncaster, Barnsley to Ilkley and Richmond to Scarborough.

The Tour de Yorkshire is a legacy from that Grand Depart and was a three-day race for its first three incarnations from 2015-17.

"I would have been here this year but I was at home watching with glandular fever", the Manxman said, reflecting on a season which was ruined by injury and illness.

"It was incredible to see our guys win on the final stage and Lizzie [Deignan] smash it in to Harrogate. I wouldn't be here if I did not intend to race".

Trump's Utah Agenda: Keep Romney Out of the Senate
Hatch has defended Trump at times when the majority of the GOP has flocked in the opposite direction - and Trump has taken notice. The obvious goal: block Romney by denying him a good chance of winning the Utah senate republican primary, to be held next year.

The Tour de Yorkshire has been expanded to four days for 2018, with the women's race to be staged over two days.

The students travelled to Piece Hall in Halifax for the ceremony and had their photograph taken wearing t-shirts spelling out the word Richmond as Stage 3, taking place on Saturday 5th May, will begin in Richmond and end at Scarborough. "It gives it a balance for the men's race with two flat stages and two stages for attackers, allowing us to attract different riders".

Yorkshire will also host the 2019 World Road Championships and Verity has said that every Tour de Yorkshire leading up to then is a "dress rehearsal".

Day one, on May 3, startes in Beverley and heads to Hornsea and through to Wolds to Pocklington before finishing in Doncaster.
