VISA problems and flight delays means MTN-Qhubeka rider Merhawi Kudus arrived in Bridlington for stage one of the Tour de Yorkshire with just minutes to spare.

Getting changed in the back of a car and arriving at the start town just 15 minutes before the event is due to roll out isn’t exactly perfect preparation before a bike race.
