LAND art created at Goose Eye to celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire has won a coveted trophy.

The images – of a goose and a turkey, riding Chopper bikes and winking at each other – were produced on fields to welcome the cyclists when they raced through the area last month.

Now the artwork has been crowned champion, after 12 shortlisted works in a competition staged by Welcome to Yorkshire were put to an online public vote.

More than 5,000 votes were cast.

Millions of TV viewers saw the Goose Eye artwork when aerial images were beamed across the world on May 5, as the fourth and final stage of the race came through the area.

The pieces were the result of a joint venture between Fields of Vision and a community team in the hamlet, with funding support from Bradford Council.

It's the second time in three years that Fields of Vision and the council have been involved in the winning design – their Branwell Bronte on a Bicycle entry two years ago also topped the poll.

Andrew Wood, for Fields of Vision, said: "We're delighted to have worked with the people of Goose Eye and won this prestigious award for the second time, thanks to everyone who voted.

"We are now hoping to do more art alongside the route of the UCI World Cycling Championships in September."

Resident Nettie Ferrier said: "This is a testament to the incredible community spirit that exists in Goose Eye.

"Helped by the Fields of Vision team, landowners and our local, the Turkey Inn, this lovely land art properly celebrated this third visit of the Tour to the village."

The artwork had been painted into the landscape, near the top of the Côte de Goose Eye climb, just days ahead of the race’s arrival.

Those behind the creation will be invited to the Welcome to Yorkshire offices next month to receive their trophy.

Tribute is paid by Peter Dodd, the tourism and marketing body's commercial director.

"The imaginative design really made me smile when I first saw it and was clearly a big hit with the public as well," he said.

"It’s certainly a worthy winner and I’d like to offer a huge congratulations to all those people who worked so hard to create it. We look forward to welcoming them to the prizegiving ceremony.

"I’d also like to thank all the other people who created land art for this year’s race. The lengths communities go to in order to celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire is truly astounding and we couldn’t be more grateful for all the support people give the race, right across the county."

Bradford Council’s executive member for healthy people and places, Councillor Sarah Ferriby, described the success as "amazing".

She added: "I am delighted that people voted for our quirky, fun land art.

"I'm so pleased for the villagers and the Fields of Vision team who put so much effort into the creation.

"It’s great to see the lengths that people go to when celebrating the Tour de Yorkshire. In the Bradford district we have such creative people who really embrace this special event when we are lucky enough to host it."
