Team St Anne’s take on the Maserati Tour de Yorkshire

The day was finally here that our amazing ‘Team St Anne’s’ were taking part in the massive challenge of the Maserati Tour de Yorkshire Ride in Leeds.

The sun was shining at 6.30am when the race was starting with the 129km ride for the Tour de Yorkshire in which Matthew Jones, Grace Issacs, Nerys Rolinson and Adrian Lord were  all taking part in.

The atmosphere was amazing with the lady on the speaker giving out information on water supplies, race details, last minute bike checks and updates of start times. There were hundreds of people all queueing up ready to set off.

With Team St Anne’s all in the race it was time to head off to the finish line at The Headrow.

Finishing Line at The Headrow

From 11.00am the crowds were starting to grow at the finish line and the         atmosphere was getting louder and louder throughout the morning and the     afternoon with everyone cheering for all the riders who had crossed the finish line and unfortunately a few riders who were walking with punctured tyres.
