The Tour de Yorkshire is fast approaching. Taking place May 3rd to 6th, riders from the world's top teams will battle it out over the stunning landscapes of Yorkshire. 

Since it started in 2015, the Tour de Yorkshire has become a favorite amongst both riders and cycling fans with an unforgettable atmosphere created by the local communities.

Now Mavic are giving you the chance to be at the center of the action. 

The yellow Mavic neutral support car has become an icon at pro-cycling races. It all started at the 1972 Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré, when son of Mavic owner Bruno Gormand lent his car at the last minute to a Sports Manager whose vehicle had broken down. This sparked the idea of making available a completely innovative ’neutral’ assistance service.

Mavic supply a well-equipped car in front of the main body of riders to give immediate breakdown assistance to the leaders, and a complete radio liaison service between the vehicles (organizers, doctors, sports managers, journalists, etc.). They're a familiar site at many of the major races including the Tour de France and the Tour de Yorkshire.

At Wiggle, we know the difference a great wheelset and the right kit can make to any cycling endevour, from Grand Tour level to our own personal challenges. When Wiggle rider Tim Wiggins took on his Everesting Challenge, he equipped himself with the Mavic R-SYS SLR Endurance Road Wheelset and kit from the Mavic Cosmic Pro and Ultimate ranges.

Experience Mavic neutral service first-hand by entering our competition.

The finish line is in the historic heart of Yorkshire, Leeds.
