Thailand aims to stage Tour de France in Thailand next year

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) showed their interest to stage the world’s biggest cycling race, the Tour de France, in Thailand in 2015.

Cycling-in-ThailandThailand’s high-level delegation led by TAT’s Deputy Governor for Tourism Products and Business, Mrs. Vilaiwan Twichasri, held a preliminary talk with Mr. Jean-Etienne Amaury, Chairman of the Amaury Sport Organisation – the main agency organising the annual Tour de France – in Paris, France to seek ways of organising such prestigious sporting event in Thailand.

TAT Governor, Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik said, “More talks are underway, but we expect Thailand to play the perfect host to this esteemed and prominent cycling race as early as in 2015.”

The Tour de France is an annual multiple stage bicycle race, primarily held in France. The race was first held in 1903 originally just to increase sales for France’s L’Auto magazine. Following the inaugural event’s tremendous success, the race turned into an annual event and has since become so famous that riders from all over the world make it a must-participate race of a lifetime.
