UK press reports 2007 Tour will come to London

ThisisLondon | Tour de France set for London

Looks like London's bid for the 2007 Tour prologue is very likely to win out over bids from Holland, Switzerland, and Denmark.

If so, it would mark the Tour's first visit to London in 12 years.

Organisers are said to have been persuaded by the prospect of the route taking in landmarks such as Trafalgar Square, the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace.

No announcement is likely until next autumn but sources close to the world's most famous cycling race say it would be a surprise if London did not figure.

A Tour de France source said: "The London bid is seen as a good one and the route is obviously attractive. Taking the race there would be good for us and for them."
