A Japanese city is to host a special event under the Tour de France banner in October to mark the 100th edition of cycling’s most prestigious race, a report said on Friday.

Saitama City, north of Tokyo, and tour organisers Amaury Sports Organisation will soon reach a formal agreement and then announce the project, said the mass circulation Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper.

The two sides are considering inviting some 50 top cyclists to the “All Stars” exhibition, which will come after the Tour’s title race takes place in June and July in France.
