Erm France?

I wonder if the money raised form this justifies the cost of the bid and hosting? I can't see many tourists coming over for it, maybe a few Brits skivving work. It's outside of London for one, is there anywhere outside of London for foreign tourism? Doesn't all transport from France stop at London.

Wouldn't the money have been better spent on the ToB?
Let Johnny come over here and try to beat us on our own turf.

Born and raised in North Yorkshire but jumped ship 6 years ago, a mile over the border for a bigger house for less money :wink: :D

I'm sure Brocklanders023 will be along very soon to have his say on the above :P :D

Also saying it may be coming through Skipton and into the Dales.

Getting a train from France or London to Leeds or even Skipton is easily done :wink:

Not so much Le Grand Depart, more T'Reet Grand Depart, Lad.

I'll be going home to watch it.

How much do I hope they take the race up Rosedale Chimney?
