and behind the
the Tour de France
MOMENTS OF LE TOUR
It is Wednesday the 2nd of July, three days before the big start in Leeds, Yorkshire. Images of La Grande Boucle start to come into our mind- impatience grows into our hearts. The more we think about July’s biggest fight, the more adrenaline our body produces. The Tour de France starts.
The Tour is that unique yearly event which drives thousands of fans and supporters during the summer months through some of the most picturesque landscapes and along some of the hardest roads through France. On the road itself, 198 riders will fight to show their best and to reach Paris, the French capital, 3 weeks later.

Road cycling is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world and to reach glory, you have to push yourself, time and time again. To reach the highest level, you have to sacrifice, you have to overcome pain and training loads for years but in the end, taking part in the Tour de France is one of the biggest consecrations and achievements for any pro cyclist.
