The world's most famous cycle race moves south today for a stage ending in the centre of London. The third stage of the Tour de France will take the riders from Cambridge to the capital via parts of Essex.
The 155km stage follows a weekend which saw at least 2.5 million people watch the teams battle through Yorkshire's city streets and country lanes.
The Tour's general director Christian Prudhomme suggested the number of spectators on stages one and two could have been as many as five million as he declared the opening to the 2014 race "the grandest Grand Depart ever".
