2014 Tour De France

December 14, 2012 by  

2014 Tour De France, The Yorkshire bid has been low key compared with the second British bid – which incorporated Scotland, England and Wales – but the county has always considered itself the home of British road cycling with the widest diversity of road conditions and topography, and was determined to try and capitalise on that.

“Today is a proud day for everyone involved in the bid and the county as a whole,” said Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, the agency behind the county’s bid.

“We are honoured that the race organisers, the Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), have selected Yorkshire to be the host location of the 2014 Grand Départ.

“It will mean less than two years after hosting the Olympics the British public can look forward to another of the world’s biggest sporting events coming to the country, and I am in no doubt they will come to Yorkshire in their millions, lining the length and breadth of the route to cheer on the champions of world cycling and our home grown British heroes.
