toughest races on the cycling calendar and always has great
stories that show exactly how hard this event is. This year is no
different and I know every team, every rider will be looking
forward to the start and finish of each stage of the race. Being the pinnacle of the cycling year, I want all
amateur cyclists in Hong Kong to take note that these professional
cyclists all wear helmets when riding in the Tour de France. I
implore all cyclists in Hong Kong to adopt helmet wearing too!"
