Tour de France: The Inside Story

The Tour de France is the greatest bike race in the world, but it began as a humble promotional gimmick for a floundering newspaper. More than 100 years later the Tour still captivates the world and is broadcast to over 180 countries.

How did a few men looking for some way to save their struggling business become masters of a giant, successful enterprise?

Les Woodland tells the inside story of the Tour de France through the prism of the men who started it, and those who now run it. As he explores the creation and evolution of the Tour, he never runs out of those fascinating illustrative tales that make his books impossible to put down.

Henri Desgrange

We're closing in on the 2018 Tour de France, which starts July 7. I thought the picture of the week should be of the man who made that possible, Henri Desgrange.

Desgrange is the gentleman in the center. This picture was taken in the early 1930s. The rider on his right is André Leducq, who won the Tour twice.

When a group of right-wing industrialists unhappy with the politics and advertising rates of the dominant sports newspaper started their own paper, Desgrange got the job of editing it. The paper, titled L'Auto after some legal tussles, fought a losing battle for circulation. Desperate to find some way to promote the dying paper, a staff writer suggested a huge race, like the six-days on the track, but all around France. With some initial trepidation on Desgrange's part, the suggestion was put into action.

That race was the 1903 Tour de France.

We have Desgrange photo gallery.

And, if you wish to learn more about the Tour, we have a wealth of info posted. You can start here.

What you'll find in our site:

The Tour de France. Lots of information, including results for every single stage of every Tour.

Other important bike races: the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España, along with the classics, stage races, national championships, world records, and olympics.

We keep a running record of the races going on in the current year, with results, photos, maps, etc. We've been doing this since 2001, so the results for this year as well as previous years are available here.

This site is owned and run by McGann Publishing. We're a micro-publisher specializing in books about cycling history. Interested? Here's information on our titles in print.

We are devoted to cycling and all of its characters and events. The sport's past matters to us. We've been interviewing anyone who will sit down and talk to us, then writing up the interviews, and collecting other stories about cycling. We have rider histories—the stories of individual riders, many by the great cycling writer Owen Mulholland. We have our oral history project—the results of our interviews. And we've collected lots of photos over the years, of racers, racing, manufacturing, etc., which we have arranged into photo galleries for your enjoyment.

Being in the bike business for many years, we had to opportunity to travel a lot in Europe, riding bikes, attending trade shows, etc. We've written up many of our travels, and had some contributions from others whose travels differed from ours.

What would the day be without the funnies? Our friend Francesca Paoletti has drawn a series of comics about bike related stuff, poking fun at us along the way.

If you are interested in bikes, sooner or later you will want to know some technical information about bikes. We have articles here about bike weight, how bike frames are prepped and assembled, selected bike parts, and others.

And then there's food! The bicycle runs on the human engine, and the human engine runs on food, so of course we're interested in that.

Along the way we've been privileged to meet many people in and around the bike business who do things we like. The folks whose ads are up there on the right are friends of ours who we believe conduct their business knowledgably and honorably; here are a few others who do stuff we like.
