With thanks to
For the Grand Départ, the biggest race the United Kingdom has ever staged, we provided the required massive event management infrastructure…
To turn the UK’s largest county into a safe and successful stage for the Grand Départ.
Road closures, stewards, communications, barriers, onsite medical provision — and toilets — to serve up to five million spectators.
Everything that the race required — including more fencing than was available in the British Isles — we helped to procure.
In order to see and hear everything that we needed to — and ensure that Yorkshire still functioned — we had a base in the best vantage point in the county: the Police headquarters.
‘Yesterday (Stage 1), I was impressed… But today? It was unbelievable, incredible, amazing, astonishing…’
Christian Prudhomme, General Director of the Tour de France
Between stages — and on both sides every road — the clearing and redeployment of two hundred kilometres of fencing in just eight hours.
