Yorkshire is bidding a fond au revoir to the greatest ever Grand Départ of the Tour de France.
Millions of spectators lined the routes of the two Yorkshire stages, creating unprecedented scenes that left the riders, teams and organisers astounded by what they had witnessed.
Christian Prudhomme, director of the Tour de France, said: "I work for the Tour, but I also love the Tour, and I have seen that the people of Yorkshire love the Tour too. I can see the Tour in their hearts, and in their eyes."
"When you said you would deliver the grandest Grand Départ it was the truth, you have raised the bar for all future hosts of the Tour de France."
Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: "When we first bid for the Grand Départ of the Tour de France, I promised Christian Prudhomme that we would deliver the grandest Grand Départ the Tour has ever seen.
"It gives me immense pride to say that we made good on that promise, and the success of this spectacular event will welcome an incredible new chapter in the history of Yorkshire.
The economic impact of hosting the world's greatest cycling race has been conservatively estimated to be worth £100m to the Yorkshire economy.
