The Tour de Yorkshire is the region's biggest sporting competition, with tough climbs and exhilarating sprints all set against a backdrop of stunning landscapes.
This year's competition began with controversy surrounding the sponsorship of the former Team Sky by chemicals company Ineos. The race itself, though, ran largely without interruption despite being the wettest on record. It ended in Leeds with victory for Chris Lawless, who became the first Briton to win the race.
Jonathan Brown reports.
Chris Lawless delivered a first success for Team Ineos as he sealed overall victory in the Tour de Yorkshire in Leeds.
Kamp, of the Riwal Readynez team, pipped Lawless at the line as the 135km stage from Bridlington came down to a sprint on the seafront.
Day 3 of the men's Tour De Yorkshire kicked off in Bridlington with some of the biggest names in the sport competing in the iconic event.
