Tour de France Comes To the UK in July

Tour de France Comes To the UK in July

The three British stages of the Tour de France 2014 take place on July 5th, 6th and 7th of 2014.

The United Kingdom stages are considered to be part of the UK Sport’s Event Series. The point of these stages and the London Olympics of 2013 is that they will hopefully bring in about 70 world-class events by 2019 to this kingdom.

According to Liz Nicholl, the CEO of UK Sport, this bicycling race is one of the most famous events on the sporting calendar, and these stages for this year go through some of the most beautiful and iconic landscape venues in Great Britain.

There is some concern about Tour de France 2014 bunting. People from all over the world have pledged about 8,000 small knitted jerseys for this tour. Some local England town councils have encouraged their local knitters to make a few jerseys. Will it be enough?

Leeds to Harrogate

The first stage is held on July 5th. Saturday, and is 190km long. It starts in Leeds and ends in Harrogate. This route goes through North and West Yorkshire. The riders will hopefully get to enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Yorkshire. For the riders, it should be pointed out that you should sprint into Harrogate.

York to Sheffield

The second stage on July 6th, Sunday, and is 200km long. This route starts in York and ends in Sheffield. The riders will be taking a circle-like route around Leeds and Bradford. This stage is characterized as a mixture of the modern and the ancient. Riders will face numerous short and long climbs and will challenge them to do their best.

Cambridge to Essex to London

On July 7th, a Sunday, the final third stage in England will take place. This stage starts in Cambridge, goes through Essex and ends up in London. The finish line in London on the Mall should be filled with cycling enthusiasts with Union Jack flags.

‘Fastest man on two wheels’

Mark Cavendish should be considered to be a local favourite to win these British stages. The team that he is riding with at the moment is UCI ProTeam Omega-Quick Step. He was once a specialist in short and medium points bicycle races. He has been doing extensive road races like the Tour de France since 2006. He is regarded as a sprinter which will come in handy at Harrogate. He might be one of the quickest cyclists in the world.

The person who wins the yellow jersey for all three stages could be considered temporarily to be the king of British cycling.
