Yorkshire - bigger than Belgium?

Fair play to Gary Verity (good Yorkshire name, Verity) for wanting to put on more races, and a 3-day CI-style event sounds an excellent idea.

Just can't help thinking that to have true international prestige it would need to finish in somewhere like Nelson. Or Colne. Or Bacup. I'm not fussy. And I've always thought Ramsbottom had a certain je ne sais quoi.

Also good to see that the long-standing tradition of Yorkshire comedy didn't die wi' Norman Collier. "We’ve said all the way along that we’re keen for Yorkshire to become the cycling capital of Europe and wrestle that away from the Belgians."
