Discover the Riders in Yellow

Since 1903, cyclists have been tackling France's demanding landscapes in attempt to prove themselves as the fastest man on two wheels.

The Tour's pioneer, Géo Lefèvre was considered mad by some for suggesting that cycling 2,500 km across some of France’s most demanding mountains was a good idea.
