The start of the 2013 Tour de France on the Mediterranean island of Corsica is another step closer after the local government voted on its 2011 budget, including a 4 million dollar payment to race organisers to host the start of the 3 week cycle classic.

It is understood the first 3 stages will be on the Island.
