Tour de Yorkshire: Stage 2 – Barnsley to Bedale – Mens

Hello!  This is a summary of Stage 2, as I have more pictures to make from this absorbing second stage but I hope you enjoy it. The second day’s racing was really exciting, the women set the bar high in the morning and the men followed up in the afternoon.

The conditions improved a little for the men but still pretty wet and cold with plenty of obstacles on the road to avoid. Still the colour and spectacle was great to see with plenty of fans out to wave them on.

Wiinding road, long way up

The sprint for the line was won by Rick Zabel of Katusha – He burst through with tremendous strength – I loved his expression and his team mate punching the air behind him – which I’ve shown here.

Great win for Zabel

The third day promises to be fabulous because we have both races following the coast road – See you at the seaside!

    • Hi Garth, thanks very much. I did contact him ages ago but although he was interested, he never followed up, so I assumed he’d changed his mind… perhaps time to try again. Thanks very much, 🙂
