Tour de France champion Chris Froome traces Yorkshire route

Tour de France champion Chris Froome has been in Yorkshire to plan his defence of the title he won in Paris last year.

The Team Sky cyclist spent the weekend getting to know the route the race will take ahead of the Grand Depart coming to Yorkshire in July.

He said he expected "a huge home crowd" to cheer him and his team members on as they speed along the Yorkshire leg of the route.
