STAGE 2: 149KM - BARNSLEY TO ILKLEY - FRIDAY 4 MAY - view
STAGE 3: 184KM - RICHMOND TO SCARBOROUGH SATURDAY 5 MAY - view
STAGE 4: 189.5KM - HALIFAX TO LEEDS - SUNDAY 6 MAY - view

Following its phenomenal success over the last three years, the Asda Tour de Yorkshire Women’s Race will double in size from one day to two in 2018 and take place on 3-4 May. It will once again offer one of the largest prize pots in the sport and a stellar cast of riders will be on hand to compete on Yorkshire roads.
The stages will start each morning and follow the last 132km and 121.5km respectively of the men’s stages which commence later each day.
Sir Gary Verity said: “We are proud of our commitment to promoting women’s cycling and are delighted to see the Asda Tour de Yorkshire Women’s Race doubling in size in 2018. Expanding the race to two days means we can offer our most varied route yet which will challenge the world’s best riders.
“Both stages will feature the same sprints and climbs as the men and the atmosphere on the Cow and Calf for the race’s culmination is sure to be electric.”
