The Tour de France is an annual bicycle race currently run by the Amaury Sport Organisation. For more information visit their website http://www.aso.fr/fr/homepage.html. Due to the Tour becoming more popular the race was lengthened and it therefore began to extend around the world.
Traditionally, the race is held primarily in the month of July. While the route changes each year, the format of the race stays the same with the appearance of time trials, the passage through the mountain chains of the Pyrenees and the Alps and the finish on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.
In addition the number of teams usually varies between 20 and 22, with nine riders in each. All of the stages are timed to the finish; after finishing the riders’ times are compounded with their previous stage times. Finally the rider with the lowest aggregate time is the leader of the race and therefore wins the yellow jersey.
