BARNSLEY will be one of the host destinations for the 2018 Tour de Yorkshire race.

The start and finish locations for next year's event, due to take place between Thursday, May 3 and Sunday, May 6, were revealed this morning.

Next year will be the fourth outing for the racing spectacle, which was set up following the success of the Tour de France which came to Yorkshire in 2014.

Tour de Yorkshire will expand from three to four days meaning there will be eight start and finish destinations for the 2018 race - and Barnsley is one of those.
