About the Tour de France
The Tour de France was created in 1903 by the struggling French newspaper, L’Auto, in an attempt to sell more copies. To say that the rather drastic measure worked would be an understatement as the Tour de France quickly became and still is, one of the most watched sporting events in the world!
Last year (2020) was a particularly successful Tour de France from an Irish perspective. Sprinting hero Sam Bennett managed to claim, not only Ireland’s first Green Jersey in over 30 years, but also won the prestigious final stage on the Champs Elysee. He is now one of only 4 riders to have won the blue ribbon Paris stage while wearing Green.
The 2021 Tour de France
The 2021 Tour de France will be the 108th edition of Le Tour. It will run from 26th June – 18th July. The Grand Depart will be from the beautiful, coastal region of Brittany, and, as per tradition, will end on the world famous Champs Elysees in Paris.
