OPEC members and Russia are scheduled to meet

LONDON Puma Suede Metallic Fade Sneakers Grise En ligne , Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- The Tour de France had a major economic impact on the English northern county of Yorkshire where the 2014 world famous cycle started, an official report revealed Thursday.


Described as "three inspirational days" the survey shows the July event in Yorkshire attracted 3.3 million spectators and generated 102 million pounds (about 160 million U.S. dollars) for the region's economy.


The study estimated that 1 million of the spectators were from outside Yorkshire, with about 70,000 coming from overseas. What amazed organisers was that one-in-four Yorkshire people watched the race in person.


The director of the Tour de France, Christian Prudhomme, described it as "the grandest Grand Depart" in the 111-year history of the race Boutique Homme Puma Suede Classic Bleu Blanche , with Thursday's report providing hard evidence of the value of a weekend in July.


Gary Verity, chief executive of the official agency, Welcome to Yorkshire said: "We're absolutely delighted the event brought so much money to the county to help businesses big and small, and there are benefits for the county which are impossible to measure, the profile of Yorkshire around the world has never been higher and this will have a lasting impact on visitor numbers and businesses for years and years to come."


The report says that while local businesses had a mixed experience of the Tour, with the scale of the disruption negatively affecting many companies across the region Homme Puma Suede Rouge Or En ligne , there was still a strong feeling that it was good for Yorkshire.


Despite the disruptions the majority of business owners surveyed said they would support attracting other major events in the future to Yorkshire.


The economic impact of the race was viewed as icing on the cake for Yorkshire as one of the main aims of attracting the Tour de France was to cement the UK's position as a world leader in delivering major events, as well as inspiring many more people to cycle, whether for the first time or to increase their frequency.


To coincide with the race in Yorkshire, other allied events were held, such as a 100-day Yorkshire Festival and a festival of Business, both hailed as successes Puma Sportstyle Suede and Basket Classic Blanche Noir Vente , with their economic impacts not included in the money spent directly as a result of the cycle race.


The leader of Yorkshire's capital city, Leeds, Councillor Keith Wakefield, responding to the study, said: "Hosting the start of the Tour de France elevated Leeds and Yorkshire to a platform it has never been on before. The key to its success was the way the public supported the event in such numbers and with such passion they made it a truly remarkable weekend no-one who saw it will ever forget."


The British government's Sports Minister Helen Grant MP, said: "The Tour de France in the UK was an incredible success and once again showcased how well we put on major sporting events in this country."


SOCHI Puma Sportstyle Suede and Basket Classic Noir En ligne , Feb. 6 (Xinhua) -- Japanese figure skating star Yuzuru Hanyu topped the men's short program to give Japan a lead as the team event made its Olympic debut here on Thursday.


Skating flawlessly to Parisian Walkways by G. Moore, the 19-year-old Hanyu upstaged Russia's Turin Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko with a score of 97.98 points. The Russian ranked second in 91.39, which was his personal best. Canada's reigning world champion Patrick Chan came in third with 89.71, with Yan Han of China fourth in 85.52.


"I felt a lot of pressure out there, but now that I've got a taste of what it feels like, I should be able to handle the pressure in the singles much better vans old skool pas cher ," said Hanyu, who made his Olympic debut here in Sochi.


"Plushenko to me is a hero and it felt great just to take to the same ice as him. I gave it everything I had today," he added.


The 31-year-old Plushenko had led the short program before outclassed by Hanyu. He performed almost perfectly Thursday and landed a clean quadruple toe loop-triple toe loop combination.


"I am happy with everything," he said. "I finally did a clean program. I did my quad toe-triple toe so I am happy."


Despite all the cheers from home fans, Plushenko said competing at home was difficult.


"Actually it was difficult, believe me it is so difficult skating an Olympics at home because many people are here vans slip on femme , waiting for something incredible," said Plushenko. "You need to concentrate. And today, wow, it was so difficult skating today. I skated very well I think. But I must fight a few days more."


Canada's three-time world champion Chan almost fell on his triple Axel and had to accept the third finish.


"It wasn't the best, obviously, but I've learned that I enjoy what I do puma ignite limitless pas cher ," he said. "The crowd was great and I could feel the energy out there. That's why I do this. Winning and getting a medal would be great but, at the end of the day, it's not why I'm out there."


China currently ranked fourth after Yan's short program.


"It is my average level. There were some minor mistakes in the steps and my triple jump. I'll take today's performance as a warm up (for the men's event), and I will pay special attention to the mistakes I made in my next practices," said the 17-year-old.


The team event features 10 teams and each has one representative competing in men's singles, women's singles puma fenty bow pas cher , pairs and ice dancing. They each perform a short program after which the top five teams progress to perform a free skate.
