Tour de Yorkshire Teams Announced.

With just over five weeks to go until the 2019 Tour de Yorkshire, organisers Welcome to Yorkshire and Amaury Sport Organisation have confirmed the 38 teams that will be competing between 2-5 May.

The men’s race will see Team Ineos in action for the very first time after changing their name from Team Sky, and they will be joined by fellow UCI WorldTour outfits CCC Team, Team Dimension Data and Team Katusha Alpecin. Eight UCI Pro Continental teams will also be on the start list along with seven further British-based squads.

The Asda Tour de Yorkshire Women’s Race, which takes place on 3-4 May, reads like a who’s who of elite cycling talent with 12 out of the top 14 ranked teams in the world announced on the start list. Among them are Lizzie Deignan’s Trek-Segafredo squad, Boels Dolmans Cycling Team and race debutants Mitchelton Scott. Four British teams will also be competing, with Drops Cycling, Storey Racing and Brother UK-Tifosi p/b OnForm lining up alongside the Great Britain national team.

A total of 10 teams will be in action across both races for the very first time.

Welcome to Yorkshire Commercial Director Peter Dodd said: "Finalising the teams is always exciting and we’re delighted to have attracted another strong field featuring many of the biggest names in the sport. Teams want to compete at the Tour de Yorkshire because they know they will be guaranteed massive crowds, exciting racing and an electric atmosphere. Last year 2.6 million spectators lined the route and the fifth edition will be of added interest to many riders given that the UCI Road World Championships are taking place here in September. With the teams we’ve got coming we will be guaranteed some enthralling racing and we’re looking forward to it immensely."

The men’s and women’s team line-ups will be finalised in the fortnight before the race with a number of big-name attendees set to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
