The 2019 competition has been upgraded by the UCI governing body to HC status – the highest ranking for a multi-stage race outside of the world tour.

Attracting some of the biggest names in cycling has proven to be a major coup for Yorkshire with around £100million brought into the economy during the prestigious race.

The upgraded competition is once again expected to draw in millions of spectators to the roadsides of Yorkshire and around the world on TV.
