Quebec officials hold out hope for 2008 Tour stage

CBC Montreal | Quebec City still in race to host Tour de France

Quebec officials have proposed a stage finish during the 2008 Tour, which will mark the city's 400th anniversary.

Jean-François Pescheux told La Presse (original story in French) that the transfers necessary to do a stage or stages in Quebec will be too difficult for race organizers.

City officials are still optimistic, since Tour Director Jean-Marie Leblanc told them Tuesday that the Tour will not decide before the end of September, when Quebec mayor Jean-Paul L'Allier meets with Leblanc to examine the proposal in detail.
