5th Tour de Yorkshire May 2nd-5th 2019

Finally, just a mention of the handful of big names taking part.  #ccc Greg van Avermaet, Serge Pauwels. #sky (cough cough) Chris Froome.  #didata Mark Cavendish.  #katusha Marcel Kittel.  #cofidis Stéphane Rossetto.  #total Lilian Calmejane, Johnathan Hivert.
Are the pick of a rather disappointing startlist, given what will be taking place here, later in the year.

Yeah, big names, Froome, Cavendish and Kittel certainly are and the two latter actually have something to prove this season so far, but there are some new names on the list that can shake up the WT teams:
#wiggins Thomas Pidcock - because cyclocross aces are all the rage in the classics this year
#riwal Aleksander Kamp - a very solid rider on this type of terrain and I think he can be the Dane to watch this year, with King Cort not showing up.
#axeon Kevin Vermaerke  - just off from the U23 LBL win, he is in great shape.

- adding these in case Kittel and Cavendish have nothing to show
#katusha Harry Tanfield - every race needs a local hero?
#katusha Rick Zabel - usually good at this time of the year, surprised he is not in Frankfurt
#didata Rasmus Tiller - also a good rider suited for the terrain, not unlike Kamp but not so fast on the climbs
