Tour Maker Jane Hockin says she was inspired by the London Olympics to help make the Grand Depart in Yorkshire just as successful.

Jane, who watched yesterday’s first stage in Addingham, is in West Vale as a Tour Maker helping the ever-growing crowds in the village as the race edges closer to Calderdale.

She said: “After seeing the Olympics I wanted to help promote Yorkshire and I’m a keen cyclist myself.

“I couldn’t believe it was coming here so I wanted to help make it a success.

“The atmosphere is building by the minute and everybody’s really friendly and chatty.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing.”
