The start and finish locations of the first ever Tour de Yorkshire international cycle race have been announced today - with the East Riding set to play a major part after missing out in the Grand Depart in the summer. Bridlington will host part of the race, along with Scarborough, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York. We don't know the exact route yet but details will be revealed next month.
