Lizzie Deignan is the latest star rider to confirm her attendance as the 2017 Tour de Yorkshire is now just 50 days away.
Deignan (née Armitstead) will return to her home county for the Asda Women’s Tour de Yorkshire on Saturday 29 April, which will see the world’s best riders tackling a tough 122.5km route from Tadcaster to Harrogate.
