Leyburn schoolchildren are to star in the town’s ‘big reveal’ next month.

They are among pupils across the region helping Welcome to Yorkshire unveil which of the eight host towns will be start and finish locations for the 2020 Tour de Yorkshire.

The County Primary school youngsters were filmed at Leyburn’s Wensleydale Railway Station last week.

Welcome to Yorkshire and the Amaury Sport Organisation announced last month (November) that the market town will feature in the race during the four day event next spring. Final details of the route, the day it visits Leyburn and whether the race will start or finish in the town will be revealed on January 17.

Leyburn is joined by seven other host locations – Barnsley, Beverley, Halifax, Huddersfield, Leeds, Redcar and Skipton. 

The race takes place from April 30 to May 3, 2020.
