Congrats. 

Did you know that the Tour de France has it's roots in the Dreyfus affair? The magazine that started the race was started by supporters of Dreyfus.

That's great! They still call this Tour de France? Next thing I know they'll be holding the World Series somewhere somewhere outside "our" world  ;-)

Yes, I saw that. Didn't realize Scotland was competing, don't think it would have come this far north if they'd won.

Still great news it's in the UK.

they recon it will put 100 million into the regions economy! plus lots and lots of scenic shots of yorkshire broadcast all over the world - plus lots of mentions and coverage all over tv.

The competing regions were Yorkshire, Scotland, a region of Germany (if forget the name) and venice - venice stuck as have no idea how that one would come off!

really the 3 ones with a realistic chance was Yorkshire, Germany and Scotland - and Scotland fought hard - however think a yorkshire lad - bradley winning helped our case. Plus welcome to Yorkshire have fought really hard with their Back-Le-Bid campaign getting the Yorkshire people to sign petitions etc to bring it here!
