Welcome to the Tour de France

The Tour de France (TdF) is the world's biggest annual sporting event. It is a race the usually contains it's fair share of drama, physical and mental excellence and, more often than not, scandal. Despite 'the troubles' of recent times, the TdF has not lost any of it's attractiveness to a global audience of billions.

For three weeks every July, we are normally glued to the television watching the world's best cyclists compete for the biggest prize in cycling. Prior to 2006, that was captured by Lance Armstrong for seven straight years. We were lucky enough to see Lance win his fifth title in 2003 live by flying from Dubai (where we were living at the time) to the South of France, hiring a car, plotting our viewing spots, and waiting for the peleton to pass. We did this every day for eight straight days. Sound exciting? It was one of the best experiences of our lives and let us tell you why...

We 'joined' the Tour in Lyon, arriving a day before the cyclists came to town.
