Total stage length: 122.5km

1 King/Queen of the Mountain Climbs: Lofthouse

2 Sprints: Knaresborough & Ripon

Total ascent: 1,638m

On Stage Two, men and women will face exactly the same stage which starts in Tadcaster. The action commences on the newly-reopened Tadcaster Bridge and ventures into Knaresborough where the first intermediate sprint points are up for grabs. The sole categorised climb comes on the Côte de Lofthouse and then it’s on to Ripon for the second intermediate sprint. The race will skirt Fountains Abbey before a fast approach to Harrogate, and the action will reach its crescendo along Parliament Street, just as it did on the opening stage of the 2014 Tour de France.
