On Friday, CULT Energy Pro Cycling will be taking on the new British three day stage race Tour of Yorkshire in the northeastern part of England – organized by A.S.O. who are also responsible for Tour de France. Containing three stages between 167 and 174 kilometers in difficult and surprisingly hilly terrain, the race will not be an easy one. In 2014, the Tour de France visited this area of Britain and the organizers must have liked the unpredictable and beautiful landscape enough to come back.


CULT Energy Pro Cycling have been struck by illness and a number of injuries throughout the spring campaign but without a captain for the GC, everyone in the line-up gets a chance to shine.

 

CULT Energy DS Luke Roberts says:


“The Tour of Yorkshire is a race we have been particularly looking forward to after seeing the way the public greeted the Tour de France last year in this region and of course we will be lining up with a home town hero, Russell Downing. Stage 1 will be tough but I think we will still see a bunch sprint from a smaller group. Russell will be super motivated to stay in the lead group and fight for the win in Scarborough. Stage 2 is definitely one for the sprinters and again Russell will be looking to put our first win on the board in his home country. The final stage is very tough and will likely sort out the GC. It will be a tactical battle and with most of our riders in top shape now we will have more than one card to play.”


CULT Energy Pro Cycling line-up:
Russell Downing, Rasmus Quaade, Alex Kirsch, Karel Hnik, Martin Mortensen, Romain Lemarchand, Joel Zangerle and Gustav Larsson.
