Docklands Light Railway has nailed its colours to the mast by showing its support for British cyclists Chris Froome and Mark Cavendish ahead of next week's arrival of the Tour de France in London.

Vava Froome and Allez Cav have been emblazoned on two trains on the network with yellow and green wraps also used to represent their respective team colours.

On Monday the Tour will visit the English capital for the firms time since 2007.

Clare Donovan, marketing and communications manager for DLR operator Serco Docklands, said "There is a great buzz about the upcoming Tour de France and so it seems right that London welcomes our British riders with style.

"British cycling has been so successful in recent years and we're proud of our cyclists. Serco looks forwards to welcoming the riders and such a prestigious sporting event as it comes to London."
