The Tour de France was created in 1903 by the struggling French newspaper, L’Auto, in an attempt to sell more copies. To say that the rather drastic measure worked would be an understatement as the Tour de France quickly became and still is, one of the most watched sporting events in the world!
There are several races taking place within the Tour which makes it a fascinating spectacle. The leader and subsequent overall winner wears the Yellow Jersey (le maillot jaune). Other prizes on offer are: the daily stage victories, intermediate sprints for the green points jersey and the mountain points for the red polka-dot climber’s jersey. Another classifications is the white jersey for the best rider under 25. The arrival of the riders of the Tour on the Champs-Elysées in Paris is always a massive cheering event where thousands of spectators gather to cheer on the riders.
