Watched the women just past the Lofthouse climb. Slight worrying moment as spectators were acting as shepherds with around 30 sheep on the race route. Plenty of racers right off the back (8 mins plus with 100k to go). At least one finished as one was the only rider from Greece. Chapeau.
Watched the last 80k on a big screen in Massham market square. A few hundred people in the sunshine applauding the first 5 over the line.
Really nice day out.
Taking those two climbs out tilts it slightly back towards the sprinters I reckon.
Would love Sam Bennett to win.

Teunissen drafting his way back in...
And BBC are on a 30 minute delay
Man, the conditions are awful. Such a shame. I wish the race had been a week earlier.
I'd say a lot of them are regretting not putting shoe covers on this morning. There's going to be a ton of abandons
The race has been live on BBC red button / online since the start...
Driving into Harrogate and the fire brigade are out pumping water out of floods on the race route
