The 100th running of the Tour de France concluded on Sunday, a race like none other. It is considered by many to be the most prestigious sporting event of all time. Countries have risen and fallen, wars have been lost and won but the Tour de France has stood the test time. A picture is worth a thousand word right? So I thought I would share a few images from the 100 years of the epic race that has engraved in our minds both heroes and villains, brought us tales of great victories and crushing defeats.
These images, and many more here and here. And of course some history from the official Tour de France website here.
