Robbins selected for ‘Le Tour de Yorkshire’

TRISTAN Robbins (CO 2009-14) has been selected by the Madison Genesis Team for his biggest and highest profile race: Le Tour de Yorkshire.

He has been riding professionally for two years and will compete in the Category 1 race on the pro circuit organised by the Tour de France ASO organisation. It is hugely prestigious and was included on the pro circuit after the success of the Grand Depart in Yorkshire in 2014. Big names are taking part including Wiggins, Hayman (who just won Paris Roubaix last weekend), Voeckler, Bernie Eisel and others.

ITV4 are showing the three-day stage race live during the day Friday-Sunday this week; highlights will be at 7pm on those same evenings.
