It’s been described as God’s Own County, and for cycling and snooker enthusiasts, rightly so. For four days in May, over 2.5 million spectators will take to the streets to cheer on the Tour de Yorkshire, a high-octane cycling race that sees the best cycling teams in the world power through 150 towns and villages across a county blessed with three national parks, a wild and rugged coastline, and breathtaking Victorian architecture. While finely-tuned cyclists battle it out to be King of the Mountain, down in Sheffield, an altogether quieter but no less intense battle will be being waged inside The Crucible Theatre; 32 professional snooker players competing one on one to be crowned Betfred Snooker World Champion.
