Lance Armstrong, winner of a record seven titles

The Tour de France is a cycling stage race held since 1903 over a current period of three weeks, although it was not staged from 1914 to 1918 and from 1940 to 1946, because of the First World War and Second World War respectively.

The first winner was Frenchman Maurice Garin. Four of his fellow countrymen won the race during the next six years, before François Faber, from Luxembourg, became the first winner from outside France in 1909. Frenchman Jacques Anquetil became the first person to win five tours, including four consecutive races from 1961 to 1964. Belgian cyclist Eddy Merckx in 1974 and Frenchman Bernard Hinault in 1985 also completed five victories. In 1986, Hinault was denied a sixth victory by American Greg LeMond, who became the first winner from outside Europe. Three years later, LeMond recorded the narrowest margin of victory, when he beat Laurent Fignon by eight seconds.[1] Spaniard Miguel Indurain became the first winner of five consecutive tours from 1991 to 1995. His feat was surpassed by American Lance Armstrong, who recovered from testicular cancer to win seven consecutive tours between 1999 and 2005.[2]

French cyclists have been the most successful in the event, having won 36 of the 94 tours, although their last champion was Bernard Hinault in 1985. They are followed by Belgian riders, who have won 18, including seven consecutive titles from 1912 to 1922. Cyclists from Spain have won twelve events. Cyclists from United States have won ten events, all coming from LeMond and Armstrong. In total, cyclists from 11 countries have won the Tour de France.

During the Tour's history, its organisers have launched a series of other jerseys. In 1933, the race's best climbers were rewarded with the King of the Mountains competition, but it was not until 1975 that the leading rider in the classification wore the distinctive polka dot jersey.[3] To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the race in 1953, the green jersey competition was started. It rewarded the consistent finishers in individual stages by awarding points depending on the place in the stage.[4] In 1975, the Tour organisers launched an award for the leading young cyclist, awarding a white jersey to the leading cyclist under 26 years of age in the general classification.[3] Eddy Merckx in 1969 is the only rider to win the King of the Mountains, the points and the overall title in the same year. He would have won the young rider title as well had it existed at the time.

Footnotes

A. a b c : Bjarne Riis has admitted to the use of doping during the 1996 Tour de France. The organisers of the Tour de France have stated they no longer consider him to be the winner, although Union Cycliste Internationale has so far refused to change the official status due to the amount of time passed since his win. Jan Ullrich was placed second on the podium in Paris.[124]
B. ^ : Floyd Landis was the winner at the podium ceremony in Paris on the last day of the 2006 tour, but subsequently was found to have tested positive for performance enhancing drugs during stage 17 of the race. The United States Anti-Doping Agency found him guilty of using synthetic testosterone during the race and stripped him of his title on September 20, 2007.[125]

Notes

  1. Bjarne Riis has admitted to the use of doping during the 1996 Tour de France. The organisers of the Tour de France have stated they no longer consider him to be the winner, although UCI have refused to change the official status due to the amount of time passed since his win[1]
  2. Floyd Landis' win in 2006 was disputed as he tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone. He was the subject of an arbitration hearing before the USADA and a guilty verdict was reached on 20 September 2007. The UCI immediately stripped Landis of his title .
  3. 3.0 3.1 Includes the changes made after Landis was stripped of the 2006 title
