The Tour de France is the world’s greatest cycling race, the most colourful, gruelling and inspiring event in the sporting calender. Covering a distance of some 2,200 miles in 20 stages over three weeks, the Tour has assumed near myhic status and been compared to a great novel by Balzac or Tolstoy, “a grand narrative of drama, conflict, heroism and suffering”. Tour de France: the illustrated centenary history is a complete record of this epic sporting event from it’s calamitous beginnings through to the focus of global media attention it is today.
