Great Britain intends to opt out of the Tour in 2026

The The Tour de France could return to Great Britain in 2026 after the government assured on Wednesday that it will help finance a bid to host the Grand Départ of the race. Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s fall budget confirmed that funds will be set aside for a bid for the French competition as part of a move to attract more world-class sporting events to the UK.

The tour he last visited the British Isles in 2014, with two stages in Yorkshire and a third from London to Cambridge. According to British Cycling, the event generated approximately 130 million pounds. London also hosted the Grand Départ in 2007 and the race visited Great Britain in 1974 and 1994. It has become increasingly common for the gala round to start outside of France: in 2022 it will start from Denmark and in 2023, from Bilbao.
