LOCAL businesses and organisations are keeping their fingers crossed that Ryedale and the North York Moors will be announced as hosts of the Tour de France.

There are high hopes that the world’s greatest cycle race will travel through the area during its stop off in Yorkshire on July 5 and 6, 2014, giving the local economy a much needed boost and the chance for locals to see such cycling heroes as 2012 Tour winner Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish.

The full route will be announced in Leeds and Paris on January 17.
