Le Tour de France July 4-26, 2009

Paris, France

The best cyclists in the world compete each year in the Tour de France. It is the most prestigious and famous cycle race in the world, covering around 3500 kilometers of mountainous, coastal and rural terrain. The race usually lasts about 23 days, attracting cyclers from around the globe. The course route changes every year, although it always finishes in Paris. This year, the 2009 race will start off in Monaco and finish at the Champs- Elysees in Paris.

The race is broken down into day-long segments which are called stages. The time it takes to finish each stage is then totaled to determine the winner for the race. Twenty different teams of nine riders compete on 10 flat stages, five mountain stages and two individual stages. Le Tour de France was established in 1903 by Henri Desgrange, a French journalist and cyclist. The race has been held nearly every year since.
