The name may be a lot less catchy than the Tour De France but the Tour De Yorkshire is a British cycling gem at the heart of the racing community.

A gruelling four-stage race, the Tour climaxes with a 175km hilly cycle across the Côte de Park Rash before a home-straight burst into Leeds city centre.

So, how can you watch the Tour De Yorkshire live on Freeview TV? What time is the highlight package? And when does the final stage air?

When is the Tour De Yorkshire final stage?

The final stage is on Sunday, May 5th.

Saturday sees the men take on the third stage of their Tour, the Yorkshire Coast stage.
