Tour De France

Postby Janneka » Sun Jun 23, 2013 9:56 pm

Tour De France is here again (Starts 29th June, ends 21st July) What a great expectation! ''From the outset in 1903, when journalist Geo Lefevre and his editor Henri Desgrange, hatched the idea of an endurance race around France to boost sales of their newspaper, L’Auto, the Tour has always been part-publicity stunt, part-genuine sporting contest. And even now, at the sport’s nadir, the Tour’s essential charms to fans and sponsors remain the same: roads, mountains, the beauty of France and men willing to push themselves to extremes.'' Above all, it means more to the contestants and this year's looks more challenging for these folks. We're waiting with very high enthusiasm.
