TOUR DE FRANCE

What's this?

It is a cycling race in stages held during the month of July throughout the French geography. It is considered the most important race in the world. The tour began in 1903 and has experienced two periods of interruptions due to the two world wars. The winner of the Tour de France receives 1800 points to enter the Cycling Hall of Fame, the highest number of points awarded in a single cycling event.

History

Jacques Anquetil, Bernard Hinault, Eddy Merckx and Miguel Indurain have been the most successful cyclists in the history of the competition with a total of 5. Two French, one Belgian and one Spanish. Although to this day the story is totally different. In recent years the English Chris Froome has won 4 of the last 6 Tours, which puts him just one victory to match the best in history.

Over the years the competition has become more international, allowing the registration of cyclists from other countries that did not previously participate in the tournament. In the first 20 years only France, Belgium and Luxembourg took the podium of the Tour de France. Since then and after the First World War, Italy, Germany, Switzerland ... little by little participants were added to the already known world Tour de France.
