The Tour de France has been labeled many things throughout its prestigious history since its very first race in 1903: the most mainstream endurance event there is, the most prestigious and most difficult bike race, the biggest event on two wheels, and much more. With a worldwide audience of more than 3.5 billion people in over 188 countries, it´s no surprise that this incredible feat of cycling skill has rightfully earned itself many different descriptors of praise. Every year, cycling enthusiasts and pedestrian spectators alike gather to watch this exciting spectacle unfold. Whether it be around their television sets, or along the stunningly beautiful route through the Pyrenees and Alps after aweek of camping out on the sidelines, fans cheer in anticipation of catching the slightest glimpse of the 189 riders as they careen past; pedaling, coasting, and climbing their way past the peloton and across the 3,500 km course in just 21 days, hoping to claim the coveted yellow jersey, and claim victory. From flat road stages to climbing sloping hills and staggering mountains, from sprinting start to finish in intense time trial stages, the Tour de France has much to offer where entertainment is concerned, and will surely offer the same during it’s 102nd installment this July.
