About is a private, one man site, trying to gather all that's worth gathering about the biggest cycling event in the world.

It is not my intention to be up to date juryng the race, but just being a historical site.

Please enjoy a trip and learn a lot of different facts from the tour.

If you find something wrong, or know something missing, please let me know, and I'll do what I can to correct it.

Results on this site are as accepted after race each year. Later disqualifications due to use of illegal substances are not noted here.
