I don’t think I’ve ever felt so proud of Yorkshire, and I feel proud of Yorkshire a lot. What a truly fantastic Grand Depart for Le Tour De France. Starting off with a huge party in Leeds, I think even the organisers were amazed at how many people lined the streets to cheer on the cyclists.
The crowds going up Holme Moss were out of this world, and it still brings a tingle to the skin when I watch the replays.
Just in case that somehow you missed it all, or if you want to re-live the whole thing, soak up some of the images below which I think capture the magic Le Tour de Yorkshire!
