TMS have just told Boycott that news is coming out that the 2014 Grand Depart will leave from Yorkshire.
No confirmation on the web yet, apart from one article in Danish, which I don't read well enough to take as confirmation

If it's true... Hurrah!

EDIT

CONFIRMED http://www.bikebiz.com/index.php/news/read/yorkshire-to-host-the-2014-to...

HURRAH!

No Hurrah's from me, Glad to see it back in Britain, But Edinburgh should have gotten it, that way all mainland countries would have gotten some action.

As is Yorkshire gets two stages and one in London.......BALLS  14 14 14 14 14 14 14

Perhaps ASO didn't want to be hijacked by Mr. Salmond's agenda. The Commonwealth Games will be plenty of a party for him. Anyway The North is a country that deserves the race just as much and you don't need a passport to get in from Scotland (though I would still take it with you, you might be stopped at Watford Gap on the way to that London.)

As long as it's not all centered around London I'll be more than happy.
Great it's in Yorkshire, a long way for me but at least it will get a great reception there and if I can get there I will. Bit far to 'nip up' on the bike though.

I bet it will be a great spectacle and support will be fantastic.
