You'll want to spare a thought for the cyclists in the Tour de Yorkshire.

Yorkshire on the May Bank Holiday weekend can be lovely - or there can be bits of snow still visible.

For the first day of the 2016 event the peloton were cycling on an unseasonably cold day. They raced along roads which had been dusted with snow at dawn.

And in Pontefract where they were preparing for day two of the race, this guy's video captures just what colleagues were up against as they tried to raise a flag at the town's castle.

Makes you spare a thought for the cyclists and the fans lining the route.
