Lance Armstrong and the Tour de France By: Natalya Whitla
ISP 2013
MAY 21 Should his titles be taken way? Tour De France ~Used to be perimeter of France ~Now a days it takes normally 21 days and 2 rest days Distance in kilometers: Around 3,500 Km Prizes General: General Classification This is simply the combination of the times Points classification Started in 50th anniversary (1953) Started in 1903 by Henri Desgrange Points for place in different stages of the competition (Minus penalty points) Stages: medium mountain, big mountain,flat, Time trial, and sprint Mountain classification The winner is the first to the top of the mountain Victor Breyer wrote a paragraph of the first man to the top
"His body heaved at the pedals, like an automaton, on two wheels. He wasn't going fast but he was at least moving. I trotted alongside him and asked 'Who are you? What's going on? Where are the others?' Bent over his handlebars, his eyes riveted on the road, the man never turned his head nor uttered one sole word. He continued and disappeared round a turn. Steinès had read his number and consulted the riders' list. Steinès was dumfounded. 'The man is François Lafourcade, a nobody. He has caught and passed all the cracks' ... Another quarter-hour passed before the second rider appeared, whom we immediately recognised as Octave Lapize. Unlike Lafourcade, Lapize was walking, half leaning on, half pushing his machine. But unlike his predecessor, Lapize spoke, and in abundance. 'You are assassins, yes, assassins!' To discuss matters with a man in this condition would have been cruel and stupid."
