Tour de Yorkshire to be replaced with new look cycling event in 2024

Tour de Yorkshire

After a breakdown in negotiations, the hugely successful Tour de Yorkshire event will not be returning to the calendar, but a new race is set to replace it.

The event first ran in 2015, as a legacy from the previous year's Tour de France Grand Depart, in the county. LIke many other events it was cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic , but since then has not returned. Past winners of the men’s race include Greg Van Avermaet and Thomas Voeckler. 

After the pandemic, talks took place between Silicon Dales (a group which bought the rights to the race) and the owners of the Tour de France, Amaury Sports Organisation. 

Both groups looked to continue the partnership which has previously delivered the race, however it has now been revealed that the talks have failed to find a resolution to bring back the event. 

This morning, the Yorkshire Post revealed that the organisers of the Tour of Britain and Women’s Tour, SweetSpot, have been part of an agreement in principle to deliver a new race in Yorkshire in 2024. 

The two groups plan to deliver a new race in the region to coincide with the 10-year anniversary of the popular Grand Depart of the Tour de France in the area. The original Tour de Yorkshire was a four-day race for the men, with a two day event for the women’s equivalent, although the new race is likely to be a one-day classics style race. 

According to the Yorkshire Post, it is hoped that the event will be able to carry the same UCI ranking. It is also believed that the new race will include both a men’s and women’s race, both of equal standing. Due to ASO currently owning the Tour de Yorkshire name, organisers of the new race are seeking to create a new name in order to help shape an identity for the event.

Silicon Dales, which gained a number of Welcome to Yorkshire’s assets earlier this year when the company was put into administration, has sought to reform the agency and prepare to deliver other cycling events in Yorkshire. The company have been trading again as Welcome to Yorkshire since earlier this month. 

The company’s owner, Robin Scott, told the Yorkshire Post: “We couldn’t have tried any harder to get an agreement with ASO for the Tour de Yorkshire event, but we needed a partner on the delivery side who wanted the event to go ahead in the future. In SweetSpot, who organise the Tour of Britain, we have found a partnership which will be good for Yorkshire.”

The deal with SweetSpot has not been completely finalised and signed off, although it’s likely that any arrangement would also see stages of both the Tour of Britain and Women’s Tour visit Yorkshire in 2023. The Tour of Britain is due to visit Yorkshire in September this year, with stage four taking place between Redcar and Helmsley.

Scott added: “In 2024, we’re hoping to deliver a marquee event for the region which evokes a similar energy to the amazing 2014 Tour de France Grand Depart we remember so fondly.”

On the return of the Tour of Britain to Yorkshire, Hugh Roberts of SweetSpot said: 

"We are looking forward to returning to Yorkshire this September for what is going to be one of the toughest stages of this year’s race. The route takes in the beautiful coastline around Whitby and the tough climbs of the North York Moors so it will be great way to return in style!"

Decided on your viewing point for the Tour De Yorkshire?

The cycle race is heading to parts of our region and securing a vantage point to watch the riders whizz by is all important.

Towns and villages are already starting the countdown to celebrations for the race which runs from May 2 to May 5 - and if you are heading for the Whitby or Scarborough areas to watch it, May 4 is your red letter day.

Scarborough will form the finish point for male and female riders on May 4 after the cyclists have made their way through Whitby and tackled the likes of Lythe Bank near Sandsend.

Similar to previous tours, rolling road closures will be in place, which will see highways closed for under an hour to allow the safe passage of the riders. There will be longer delays at the race finish points, some hill climbs and town centre locations.

Parking restrictions will also be in place along the route. In Whitby and Scarborough, the park and ride car parks and bus services will be operating, with drop-off and pick-up points in Scarborough town centre on Aberdeen Walk.

Both the men's and women’s races will take on a coastal stretch from Bridlington to Scarborough via Sandsend, Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay passing by coastal landmarks including Whitby Abbey.

What are the timings?

The women’s race leaves Bridlington at 9.05am, passing into North Yorkshire at Hunmanby at 9.33am. The men’s race leaves Bridlington at 2.30pm and reaches Hunmanby 2.55pm.

The riders will reach the first climb of the day, The Cote de Silpho, at 10.16am for the women’s race and 3.32pm for the men’s. From there, it’s on to the coastal village of Fylingthorpe and then Whitby.

There will be a sprint point near Whitby Abbey before the race reaches Whitby Harbour on Church Street and Station Square at 11am for the women’s race and 4.10pm for the men’s race.

tour de yorkshire whitby

Then there will be three more climbs; Cote de Lythe Bank, Cote de Grosmont and Cote de Ugglebarnby.

Then it’s on to Scarborough for a final seafront sprint from South Bay to North Bay which is anticipated to be 12.45pm for the first female riders. The men’s race will reach North Bay at 5.35pm.

And where to avoid

Don Mackenzie, North Yorkshire council's Highways member said: “Preparations are now well under way to ensure everyone will have a fantastic time watching this year’s race.

“The race will be travelling through some stunning parts of our county including the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors, the coast and other great vantage points.

“But we ask people to remember to use their commonsense when picking a place to view the race. Avoid waiting for the race on roads which are too narrow, or have no verge to stand on, and make sure our dry stone walls remain protected by avoiding climbing or sitting on them and please remember not to park on the race route.

“Whilst in the vast majority of places, road closures will be under an hour, there are places such as hill climbs and finish points where longer closures will be taking place. We urge people to be patient if necessary, check local road closures on our website and plan ahead.”

Whitby included in Tour de Britain

The race will pass through the area in September.

North Yorkshire will welcome some of the world’s top cyclists in an unforgiving uphill route in the Tour of Britain 2022, which is returning to the county for the first time in 13 years.

Organisers have announced that stage four of the race on Wednesday, September 7, will take place between Redcar and Duncombe Park in Helmsley.

The route runs through the popular seaside town of Whitby, before heading into the North York Moors National Park. The final 30km will feature the demanding climbs of Carlton Bank and Newgate Bank - both 2km long - before descending into the finish at Duncombe Park.

North Yorkshire County Council’s Corporate Director for Business and Environmental Services, Karl Battersby, said:

“We are delighted to welcome the Tour of Britain which will get national and international TV coverage for North Yorkshire on some of the county’s most picturesque roads. The riders will certainly face some testing final climbs before the finish at Duncombe Park; one of Yorkshire's finest historic houses and estates.

“North Yorkshire’s communities have embraced major cycling events over the years, including the Tour de France Grand Départ and the Tour de Yorkshire and UCI Road World Championships. Once again we anticipate large crowds and we will be supporting everybody planning to welcome and celebrate the arrival of the race.”

Karl Battersby, the County Council’s Corporate Director for Business and Environmental Services, said:

Scarborough Borough Council director, Paul Thompson, said:

“The return of a major competitive cycling race to our borough and the international interest that comes with it is fantastic news.

“We know we can count on the people of Whitby and the North York Moors National Park, and the area’s visitors, to give this exciting racing spectacle the biggest of Yorkshire welcomes.”

The Tour will visit the following regions:

• Stage one - Sunday 4 September - Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire

• Stage two - Monday 5 September - South of Scotland

• Stage three - Tuesday 6 September - North East of England and Sunderland

• Stage four - Wednesday 7 September - Redcar & Cleveland and North Yorkshire

• Stage five - Thursday 8 September - Nottinghamshire

• Stage six - Friday 9 September - Gloucestershire

• Stage seven - Saturday 10 September - Dorset

• Stage eight - Sunday 11 September - Isle of Wight

Tour of Britain Race Director, Mick Bennett, said:

“Creating a route that encourages aggressive racing and brave tactics from day one will enhance the reputation of the race, leave the one million plus spectators watching on in person for free with long-lasting memories, showcase the stunning beauty of our host venues, and repeatedly entertain a worldwide audience.”

Flt Lt Bill Spence, Lancaster bomb aimer who became a successful romantic novelist – obituary

F light Lieutenant Bill Spence, who has died aged 101, completed 36 operations as a Lancaster bomb aimer. Later in life he became a successful novelist, and he had 76 books published under various pseudonyms.

During his bomber training he teamed up with his pilot Mike Wood, a Rhodesian. In August 1944 they were posted to 44 (Rhodesia) Squadron based near Lincoln.

On August 29 1944 they flew their first operation. The target was Königsberg in east Prussia and one at the extreme range for a Lancaster. Cloud cover resulted in a delay over the target of 20 minutes to allow the Pathfinder force to mark the target accurately. The force encountered heavy anti-aircraft fire, and 15 Lancasters were lost, but the raid was one of the most successful by Bomber Command.

After the attack, it was Spence’s duty as bomb aimer to check that the bomb bay was clear. During his inspection he discovered that the bomber had been hit and was losing hydraulic fluid. On arrival back at base, the loss of fluid required the undercarriage to be pumped down manually. 

Dense fog prevented them landing at base and they were sent to nearby Fiskerton, which was one of a few airfields equipped with a fog dispersal device. This consisted of two pipelines running along both sides of the runway, through which fuel was pumped into burner jets positioned at intervals. The fuel vapours were lit from a series of burners, producing walls of flame along the length of runway. They landed safely, with minimal fuel, after being in the air for over 11 hours.

The son of a teacher, William John Duncan Spence was born on April 20 1923, and brought up and educated in Middlesbrough. After leaving school, he began training as a teacher at the Roman Catholic Training College in Twickenham, where he joined the RAF section of the Officer Training Corps.

After two years, he was called up into the RAF. He trained as a bomb aimer in Canada before beginning his tour in Bomber Command.

His second operation was to bomb a V-2 storage site in the Pas de Calais. By mid-September 1944, Bomber Command had returned to its strategic campaign against targets in Germany. On September 18, Spence bombed Mönchengladbach with Guy Gibson, of Dam Buster fame, as the master bomber. Gibson and his navigator were lost returning to base.

During November, Spence bombed the Mittelland and Dortmund-Ems canals. Oil targets became a high priority and Spence attacked the synthetic oil plants at Pölitz, Brüx and Böhlen. His aircraft was one of the first to drop their bombs on Dresden on February 13 1945. He always maintained that the city was a legitimate target and distrusted the judgement of those who did not take part in the operation.

In the closing months of the war, he flew seven operations dropping mines in the Kattegat and the approaches to the Baltic to prevent the German Navy, particularly the new generation of U-boats, from passing into the Atlantic Ocean to harass Allied shipping and convoys.

His 36th and final operation was a daylight attack on April 4 1945 against Nordhausen. At the end of their tour, his pilot Mike Wood was awarded the DFC.

After the war, Spence worked at Ampleforth College controlling stores for the catering side. He always had an ambition to write, and his breakthrough came in 1958 when his first novel, Dark Hell, based on his wartime experiences, was published. He then turned to writing westerns for Hales Publishing under the pseudonym Jim Bowden, after the first Canadian base where he was stationed. He wrote over 30 westerns before turning to other topics.

Following visits to Whitby, he became interested in the history of whaling, and wrote a definitive history of the industry, Harpooned (1980), and a historical novel, The Red Shawl, billed as “a passionate saga of the Whitby sailors and the women they left behind”.

His publisher Piatkus liked the theme but wanted it to be written by a female author and, as Spence said in many interviews, “You don’t say no to a publisher”, so Jessica Blair, his new alter ego, was born in 1990. He preferred to classify his stories as “historical sagas” rather than romantic novels as, he explained, “there is romance in practically every category of novel”. He went on to write 26 Jessica Blair novels, many set in his native North Yorkshire. His last romantic saga was published when he was 95, after which he decided it was time to retire and use his computer to catalogue his vast book collection, download music and visit online art galleries.

For 50 years he wrote articles and ran a book review column for the Malton Gazette & Herald. Together with his wife Joan, he wrote four books on North Yorkshire. He belonged to the Romantic Novelists’ Association and was nominated in 2014 for its epic romantic novel of the year.

Spence was a lifelong supporter of Middlesbrough FC and attended home games whenever possible. He was a keen cricketer and captained his village team for several years in addition to supporting Yorkshire.

Bill Spence married, in September 1944, Joan Ludley of Ampleforth. She died in 1999. He is survived by a son and two daughters. A third daughter predeceased him.

Bill Spence, born April 20 1923, died May 28 2024
