Rebecca Taylor MEP: Great news as Tour de France comes to Yorkshire!

Lib Dem Euro-MP, Rebecca Taylor, has welcomed the news that the Tour de France is to begin in Yorkshire in 2014.  The announcement is a big boost for Yorkshire, as it will see another major sporting event coming to the region.
A keen cyclist herself, Rebecca commented on the announcement,
“This is great news for Yorkshire and will be a great way to promote all the county has to offer.  Millions of people will see on their television the beauty of the county, while many more will come and visit.  This will be a major boost for the county and all who live and work here. I am delighted Yorkshire has been chosen.”
Leeds would be the host city on the 5th July.  This is the first time the race has begun in the UK since 1994.
