Translate please?
As a native speaker for long enough to have accumulated white hair, I'm just as baffled by what "waterdown trashyards" might be.
American or Euro-glish?

Harworth was home to Tom Simpson at one point.

So at least two good stages look assured...
Would be good. I still think a short TTT near Calais is most likely stage 4 but cobbles could come afterwards.

They should close the ferry terminal for people coming to see the cycling out of spite given that they ignored East Yorkshire altogether, haha.

Ok, for you lovely people unfamiliar with the area, here's a high speed zip along the roads of Calderdale which feature in Stage 2.
At 3.40 is the start of the Cragg Vale section....not steep but about 7 miles of continuous climb.

Enjoy.

What do you mean? After JTL has won the first of his eighteen LBLs in April and then dominated the Giro, this is the stage where he'll establish a decisive lead after a solo break established in the second kilometre, a lead which he'll extend all the way to Paris.
