Fans had to wait a little longer than expected to see the riders, who had followed the same 135km route as the women took this morning from Otley to Doncaster. They waited patiently and when the cyclists finally did arrive, around 15 minutes behind schedule, they greeted them with cheers.

An announcement made just before they arrived said a Yorkshire man was in the lead.

The men then cycled through Tickhill before reaching the finish line in Bennethorpe around an hour later. The winner of the race was Sky team's Danny Van Poppel
