Tour de Yorkshire – Stage One Bridlington

Bridlington Starts them OFF.........

 

More than 1.2 million people are estimated to have turned out for the inaugural three-day Tour de Yorkshire.

Stage One from Bridlington to Scarborough saw 250,000 spectators line the streets on Friday, according to estimates by police and race officials.

Another 450,000 braved chilly weather to watch the riders as they raced from Selby to York in Saturday's Stage Two.

Even bigger crowds of 500,000-750,000 saw the Wakefield to Leeds final leg.

The race was set up as a legacy event in the wake of last summer's successful Tour de France Grand Depart in Yorkshire, which attracted more than 2.5 million people to the county and generated about £100m for the regional economy.

Organisers of the Tour de Yorkshire predicted about one million people would take to the streets to welcome some of the world's top cyclists, with a line-up including Sir Bradley Wiggins.
