Have your say

Two people from South Yorkshire have been selected as champion volunteers for the Tour de France.

Alex Riley, 21, from Barnsley, and Elena Perousse, originally from France, but now a student at Sheffield Hallam University, will perform Tour Maker duties for Le Grand Départ when it heads to Sheffield in July.

Alex said: “It’s really exciting because the Tour de France is such a big event and I watch it every year.”
