Tour de Yorkshire 2019 route

It looks to be another cracker and, again, Halifax is the start of stage 4 ... which features Goose Eye and Park Rash again, before finishing in Leeds. There's a lot of unclassified climbing ... of course.
Stage one is a route around East Yorkshire and Humberside, with a finish amongst the splendour of York. Stage 2 is a South to North plod, with a circuit of the Worlds finish in Harrogate the highlight. Stage 3 is the, usually brutal, tour of the coast and North York Moors.
Always good action there but it is a bit disappointing that they have once again uses a Scarborough finish as with every edition so far. I know a race like this is influenced heavily by where the money and local council support is for the event so it is easy to understand.

The next step for this event is surely a summit finish on Holme Moss where 60,000 people camped out for several days to watch the TDF pass up the iconic climb back in 2014.

I will be roadside again for this but will wait for the full stage profiles to choose my vantage point.
On stage 4, Goose Eye is pretty good. Not a long climb, but very steep, and there's usually a big party in the village centre and Turkey Inn. Park Rash is the other place I suspect there will be big crowds.
