It's expected to be confirmed later today that Stage Three of the Tour de France next summer will start in Cambridge and head south to London before making a circuit of the Olympic Park.
It's thought it will ultimately finish on the Mall with Buckingham Palace as a backdrop.
The finish will be the same one used for the Olympic road races last summer.
