Tour De France | Cycling | UBET

The Tour de France is a bicycle race that takes place in France and surrounding countries in July each year. The event is held over 21 stages, with one stage completed by riders each day. Apart from when it was stopped during the two World Wars, the race has been held every year since 1903. The Tour de France is the oldest grand tour event, and is considered the pinnacle of the sport. A total of 198 riders take part in the tour. They cycle in 22 teams of nine.

Within the event, there are different competitions and jerseys, none more important than the yellow one. The famous yellow jersey is worn by the rider at the top of the general classification, meaning they have completed the stages in the least amount of time. Other jerseys are awarded to the best sprinters (green), king of the mountain (polka-dot) and the best junior under 26 years of age (white).

The sport of cycling was shocked when seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong was stripped of all titles after admitting to taking performance enhancing substances. Considering none of his wins stand, there are four riders that boast the most amount of Tour de France general classification wins. They include Jacques Anquetil (1957, 1961, 1962, 1963 & 1964), Eddy Marckx (1969, 1970, 1971, 1972 & 1974), Bernard Hinault (1978, 1979, 1981, 1982 & 1985) and Miguel Indurain (1991, 1992, 1993, 1994 & 1995). Cadel Evans became Australia’s first Tour de France champion in 2011, taking out the yellow jersey in a time of 86h 12m 22secs.
