Tour de France Turns 100...
June 28, 2013
by John Vink
They are hitting the roads today. The Pedal Executioners, the Big Thighs, the Feather on a Mountain, the Lone Breakaway, the Compact Pack, the Streamlined Time Rider, the Sprint Puller, the Kamikaze of the Alps, the Faithfull Water Carrier... They will all be there for the 100th Tour de France starting today.

I was privileged enough to follow the 1985 edition (Bernard Hinault's last). You can see more photographs here on my website. And you can find a tribute to the bicycle here.
