Tour de France 2014 coming to York
YORKSHIRE has beaten worldwide competition to bring the world’s largest annual sporting event - the Tour de France - to the county.
Yorkshire will host the Grand Départ, the huge and prestigious opening few days racing, of the 2014 event, bringing the iconic race to the north of England for the first time.
Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, the agency behind the county’s bid, said: “Today is a proud day for everyone involved in the bid and the county as a whole. 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.”
The race will be as close to Selby as its ever been as the riders will be making their way through York.
