1907 Tour Quick Facts:

4,488 km raced at an average speed of 28.470 km/hr

93 starters and 33 classified finishers.

Émile Georget was riding with a substantial lead, but after he made an illegal bicycle change, he was hit with a 45 point penalty, large enough to make it impossible for him to win the Tour. Lucien Petit-Breton, who was riding extremely well, became the leader and eventually the 1907 Tour's overall winner.

The 1907 Tour used points to calculate the General Classification.

Stage 8: Monday, July 22, Nîmes - Toulouse, 303 km

There are all kinds of problems with the results from this stage, The official Tour site (which is rife with errors) has an entirely different top 10 and Trousselier's unchanged GC point total from stage 7 makes no sense since he came in 6th in stage 8. I've thrown up my hands and gone with the results from the Tour Encyclopedie.

Émile Georget, at a point while he led the Tour, takes a short break. The picture in the circle is of Georget at the Parc des Princes velodrome in Paris.

 

Winner of the 1907 Tour de France, Lucien Petit-Breton. Always well-turned out, the natty Petit-Breton always had every hair in place.
