History of the Tour

Tour de France

This event, held annually in France, has a rich and fascinating history that spans over a century. The Tour de France was created in 1903 by journalist Henri Desgrange, with the aim of increasing the circulation of the newspaper L'Auto, where he was the editor-in-chief. The first edition of the Tour de France began on July 1, 1903, with 60 riders ready to take on the challenge. The participants had to cover approximately 2,428 kilometers in six stages, connecting Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Paris, Marseille, Paris, and finally Bordeaux. The winner of this first edition was Maurice Garin.

Tour de France

Despite the controversies of the 1990s and 2000s, particularly around doping, the Tour de France has remained a major sporting event, attracting millions of spectators along the roads of France and viewers from around the world. It has also expanded its influence by organizing starts abroad and encouraging the participation of international riders.

The yellow jersey, or "the leader's jersey," is the most iconic symbol of the Tour de France. The rider with the lowest overall time after each stage wears this jersey. It is a highly coveted honor, and the battle for the yellow jersey is often intense.

The 2024 Stages

Since its inception, the Tour de France has evolved and transformed into a major global sporting event. The route changes every year, but the format of the race remains essentially the same. It consists of 21 stages, including a combination of mountain stages, individual time trials, and flat stages.


Among all the 21 stages of the 2024 Tour de France, here are the ones that will pass near the Siblu holiday parks:



To the French, the Tour de France is much more than just a cycling race. It is an institution, a symbol of France, and a showcase for professional cycling. Over the years, it has evolved while remaining true to its roots, continuing to captivate audiences with its unique blend of competition, drama, and athletic feats. This legendary race continues to write its history year after year, inspiring cycling enthusiasts around the world.
