The Tour de France changes over time

By shamim kordbache History
De eerste route van de Tour de France, 1903
Before July, 1903, nothing like the Tour de France had ever been attempted. 60 men, mostly French, mounted their bicycles outside a café in Paris. The challenge of embarking on an unprecedented endurance without knowing the prize money of 20,000 francs brought all of these cyclists together. Henri Desgrange, a French cyclist and journalist, organised this endurance race, which was sponsored for advertising purposes by the newspaper L'Auto (now L'Equipe). Thus, the legendary Tour de France has begun. However, the Tour de France, like everything else in the world, has undergone many changes over time.

Eugène Christophe met de eerste gele trui, 1919
The world's largest cycling race, a national landmark that France values almost as much as the  Eiffel Tower and its 360 cheeses! Nothing compares with La Grande Boucle (French for The Great  Loop and Tour de France nickname) in the world of cycling. For more than a century, the Tour de  France has taken place over a three-week period every summer (except during warfare). It is  remarkable in that it draws over 12 million spectators along the streets, in addition to millions of  people watching on television from all around the world.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SHOP "RETRO WIELERKLEDING"

By Wijtze De Groot General
We get several questions about the website Retro-Wielerkleding.nl. Until recently this was another website which was not managed by our team. Meanwhile this shop ceased to exist. Unfortunately we cannot answer questions about this shop, (current) orders and such. Also, if you want to return a shipment that you have placed through this site, it is not possible for us to handle this. If you have a question about a jersey that you ordered through this site - regarding a different size/version - we can of course check if we ourselves have it in stock.
