The timings for the Tour de Yorkshire 2019 have now been released. Please note that the race caravan will also pass through Craven approximately two hours before the race itself, and will stop in Skipton and Kettlewell.
Stage 4 – The Yorkshire Classic: Sunday 5 May – Halifax to Leeds, 175km (108.7 miles)
The Piece Hall in Halifax will provide a spectacular start location at 12:10 and the action will head up the cobbled Main Street in Haworth at 13:11 before the first of six categorised climbs comes on the Côte de Goose Eye at 13:21. Crossing from Brontë Country into Craven, the route heads through Skipton at 13:35 and the next climb is looming on Barden Moor at 13:49. The action will then head into the Dales and the riders contest the first intermediate sprint in view of Kilnsey Crag at 14:17 before hitting the fearsome Côte de Park Rash at 14:31. The route continues on to Masham (15:23) and into Nidderdale where the riders will grind their way up the Côte de Greenhow Hill at 16:05. The undulating terrain doesn’t relent and shortly after passing through Otley at 16:39 the next categorised climb is on the cards at Otley Chevin (16:45). The final intermediate sprint points will be fought out in Tinshill at 16:58 before the riders sweep into Leeds for a rip-roaring conclusion on The Headrow at 17:17.
