East Riding of Yorkshire’s first stage in Tour of Britain history is one for the sprinters. What price Olav Kooij becomes only the second rider in race history to win three-consecutive stages?

Following a start in the port town of Goole, the peloton will head north to Howden, Market Weighton, and Driffield. Riders will then get a taste of British seaside life when they race through Bridlington, before they head inland towards the finish line upon reaching Hornsea.

The expected sprint finish will take place at Beverley Westwood, a popular green space for families that sits next to the town’s racecourse.

Despite being a new host county to the Tour of Britain, East Riding of Yorkshire has an established history of welcoming professional cycling races, having most recently featured in the UCI World Championships in 2019.

Stage three is supported by Howdens, the UK’s number one trade kitchen supplier.
