Côte de Grosmont

A trip out to watch the Tour de Yorkshire. By the time the riders began the 4th Classified Climb at Grosmont, there was a break in the showers. The “Côte de Grosmont” is not long, only 500m but a gradient of 15% makes it a tough little climb. Amid a cacophony, Team INEOS, in their rather drab colours, are seen here setting the pace. INEOS is a controversial sponsor. It is one of the companies that hold fracking licences to extract shale gas from under Yorkshire. Fracking is claimed can cause air and groundwater pollution, contribute to the greenhouse gas emissions, and can trigger earthquakes.
