Tour de Yorkshire 2 – Cycle Race – Cropton village 2015

Here we have a few more photos of the first day of the Tour de Yorkshire international cycle race. These images were taken as the cyclists pedalled very quickly through Cropton village on Friday 1st May 2015.

‘The Peleton’ was very closely bunched as they came through Cropton village.

This group appears to include Sir Bradley Wiggins (red jersey – fourth from the left)? He has recently formed ‘Team Wiggins’ and this is the first race they have taken part in.
