Welcome to Yorkshire Chief Executive Sir Gary Verity DL said: “We’re thrilled that the Tour de Yorkshire is now featuring prominently on such a popular game and it’ll introduce our race to thousands of new people around the world.

“Once they’ve sampled the delights of Yorkshire in virtual form, we hope they will want to come and sample our magnificent routes for themselves and take in more of what our great county has to offer.
