    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.
