Le Tour de France 2017, early news.

A superb idea has been put forward by the brilliant Tony Bell…

‘Christian Prudhomme has said he wants the Tour de France to come back to the UK soon. How about in 2017? This will be the 50th anniversary of Tom Simpson’s death on Mont Ventoux. Opening stage in Tom’s birthplace of Haswell, County Durham followed by a stage in Harworth, Notts, the place his family moved to. And a stage finishing in New Brighton, the location of one of Tom’s last race’s in Britain. Just a thought.’

Cycling is my life
Tom wrote ‘Cycling is my life’ and later was going to write ‘Cycling was my life’ yet through the idea by Tony this can still be ‘Cycling was my life’
