It's day two of the best cycling event this country has to offer - the Tour de Yorkshire!

The women's event set off at 9.20am from Tadcaster, arriving in Harrogate around 12.30pm.

The men's race sets off from Tadcaster at 2pm and is expected to hit Harrogate at around 5pm.

Both men and women face exactly the same stage which starts on the newly-reopened Tadcaster Bridge , heading into Knaresborough where the first intermediate sprint points are up for grabs. The riders hit the Côte de Lofthouse and then speed on to Ripon for the second intermediate sprint. The race skirts Fountains Abbey before a fast approach to Harrogate , where the action will reach its crescendo along Parliament Street.

And on Sunday it's a big day for us as the tour hits Huddersfield!
