The 2018 Tour de Yorkshire will not be visiting Bridlington, but cycling enthusiasts will not have far to travel to catch a glimpse of the star names.

It will be the first time the city's centre has been closed off for an worldwide race since the 2014 Tour de France.

The race will take place on the same day and similar roads to the opening two stages of the men's race, meaning that the victor will be crowned on the uphill finish in Ilkley on May 4.

Sprint specialist Cavendish, world road race champion in 2011, switched to the track for Rio 2016 and won his first Olympic medal, a silver in the omnium.

The Tour de Yorkshire is a legacy event of the 2014 Tour de France Grand Depart, when Cavendish was favourite to win the opening stage in his mother's home town of Harrogate, only to crash within sight of the finish line.
