At a high-energy conference at Tote in Mumbai last evening, ID Sports announced the launch of Godrej Eon Tour de India 2012, India’s biggest cycling carnival. Due to the size and scope of the event, it is being promoted by Maharashtra Cycling Association, Tourism Ministry and the Cycling Federation of India. It will be held in Mumbai, Srinagar, and the finale at Buddh International Circuit, in Noida. This is the first year that the event will witness sixty famous personalities coming together at the F1 track in New Delhi. Check out all the great pix!
