Mark Cavendish and Ben Swift are backing Yorkshire's bid to bring the Tour de France to the county in 2016.
Team Sky team-mate Ben Swift said he would love to see a stage of the race run in his home county. "It would be amazing to be part of the peloton through the Dales," he said.
The first two days of racing, the Grand Depart, are held in a new location outside France every two years.
Cavendish, who has won 20 Tour de France stages, believes the county's natural beauty will prove attractive to the race's organisers.
