Massive crowds see Bouhanni sprint to victory on Stage Two

Crowds on a par with those of the 2014 Tour de France Grand Départ turned out to watch a pulsating sprint finish in Harrogate which saw Nacer Bouhanni emerge triumphant on stage two.

As the sprint specialists raced towards the line Bouhanni latched onto Hivert’s wheel, but as his compatriot faded Bounhanni pressed on to seal his fourth win of the season. Ewan’s disappointment at a successive second-placed finish was tempered by the fact that he moved into the Welcome to Yorkshire blue leader’s jersey and opened up a two-second lead over Bouhanni and Friday’s victor Dylan Groenewegen (LottNL-Jumbo).

Home favourite Deignan wins Asda Womens Tour de Yorkshire

Yorkshire's very own Lizzie Deignan wowed the massive crowds who turned out to watch the 2017 Asda Women’s Tour de Yorkshire by breaking away and claiming an incredible solo victory in Harrogate.

Deignan - who hails from Otley - made her move by attacking with her Boels Dolmans team-mate Anna van der Breggen on the brutish Côte de Lofthouse climb and then left her rivals in the dust as she pressed on to the finish.

Coryn Rivera and Giorgia Bronzini completed the podium spots.

Chad Young did not survive his crash last Sunday on the Tour of the Gila.

LIVE: Tour de Romandie

Stage 4 features three first category climbs today, the "Col du Pillon" (category 1) is seven kilometres at an average gradient of 5.2 %. The climb to Leysin is four kilometres at an average gradient of 7.2 %. The first three kilometres will be tough because they have an average gradient of 8.2 %. As a consequence, this will probably be the place, where some riders will try to break away. Should make for some animated racing today.

Both Richie Porte and Chris Froome will be looking to win the race ahead of the Tour de France, so we expect some very animated racing on this mountain stage.

Follow all the action on our live stream coverage.
