The Complete Book of the Tour De France free pdf The Tour de France is the gretest public sporting spectacle on earth. For 100 editions - every year since 1903, except during the Great Wars - competitors have battled over thousands of miles of French countryside in pursuit of the coveted yellow jersey.

This encyclopeadic companion provides a complete record since the founding race, and with it everything that anyone could ever need to know about the Tour de France.

This is the essential companion to the greatest cycling race on earth, and reading it you might feel that you had taken part in the race yourself.
