Le Tour De France “Le Grand Depart” 2014
The iconic 2014 Tour De France is coming to Holmfirth!. It is an absolute honour for the route to pass right through Holmfirth on Sunday the 6th July 2014. Holmfirth is so beautiful, this is our way of showcasing it to the word !!! The route passes through the centre of Holmfirth, then up the iconic “Holme Moss”, which is where one the “KIng of the Mountains” Red Polka dot Jersey prizes will be awarded, as “Le côte de Moss” has has been deemed the one of the hills tough enough. That is why “Holmfirth” is turning White with Red spots to celebrate!!!
