A TONGUE-IN-CHEEK video about the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire has proved a big hit online.

Alistaire MacGregor created the video, giving spoof advice about what visitors and competitors could expect when the Grand Depart is held in Yorkshire next month.

It has now been viewed more than 60,000 times on YouTube. 

Alistaire, 31, said the inspiration for the video came from seeing an elderly gentleman tackling a part of Holme Moss, one of the King of the Mountain stages on the Grand Depart.

“I saw an old guy going up the hill on an old steel bike that looked like it weighed more than my car, with all this heavy gear on,” he said.

Alistaire runs a campsite and used the end of the video to promote his business.
