Stage 3 – The Yorkshire Coast Stage: Saturday 4 May – Bridlington to Scarborough, 132km (82 miles)
The male riders will roll out in front of Bridlington Spa at 14:30 and once they have exited town they will head into the North York Moors National Park. The Côte de Silpho is looming large at 15:34 and the opening intermediate sprint will be contested just after Harwood Dale at 15:47. With those points in the bag the route continues north and the action is set to reach Robin Hood’s Bay at 16:02. Once the peloton have passed through they will climb the Côte de Hooks House Farm at 16:05. Then it’s on to Whitby with a second intermediate sprint in front of the Abbey at 16:14. The views will be spectacular on the approach to Sandsend, and it is there that the Côte de Lythe Bank will be waiting at 16:25. Once they have crested that the route heads inland but the climbing doesn’t stop, and the Côtes de Grosmont and Ugglebarnby are waiting at 16:53 and 17:02 respectively. With those in the bag the race heads back to Scarborough and the frontrunners will sweep along South Bay, around the castle walls, and onto the now-legendary finish along North Bay at 17:45.
Before all that the women will commence in Bridlington at 09:05 and contest the Côte de Silpho at 10:20 before the first intermediate sprint comes in Harwood Dale at 10:35. The second climb at Hooks House Farm is set to be scaled at 10:57 before another sprint takes place outside Whitby Abbey at 11:07. The Côtes de Lythe Bank (11:21), Grosmont (11:53) and Ugglebarnby (12:05) should prove selective, meaning the winner of the stage in Scarborough at 12:56 is also likely to take the overall Asda Tour de Yorkshire Women’s Race crown as well.
