Cash is king when it comes to the tour. You have to pay to host it and it is not cheap. The spin-offs for tourism etc. tend to make it worthwhile though.

Actually, drugs are king when it comes to the Tour. Minor detail, admittedly, but sales of erythropoetin in Trafalgar Square should go through the roof next June.
