Olympic silver-medal winner Lizzie Armistead has claimed that Yorkshire is unbeatable for bike training, as the county prepares to host the opening stage of the Tour de France.

“There’s such a buzz about cycling in Yorkshire at the moment,” Armistead tells the Ripon Gazette. “As a county we’ve produced some of the best cyclists in the world and we’re very proud of our cycling history.

“For me, Yorkshire’s the best cycling destination in the world; the scenery’s beautiful and the terrain is tough, relentless even, but it’s training in these conditions that makes Yorkshire’s cyclists such strong competitors.”

The Brownlees are sure to agree, but do you? Let us know in the comments below
