The detailed route of next year’s Tour de France was today being unveiled before some of the world’s best cyclists in Paris.
For the first time in its history, the Grand Depart of the 101st edition of the world’s most famous bike race will be in Yorkshire.
Defending champion Chris Froome and multiple stage winner Mark Cavendish were expected to be among an audience of more than 4,000 people at the Palais des Congrès today when the route is revealed and examined leading to much speculation as to who will be pre-race favourite.
The 2014 Tour will spend a further day in Britain on Monday, July 7, following a route from Cambridge to London with a finishing sprint along The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.
