1911 Tour Quick Facts:

5,344 km raced at an average speed of 27.32 km/hr.

84 starters racing either as "groupes" (sponsored riders on team) of "isoles" (independent riders). 28 classified finishers.

The General classification was calculated using points.

This was the Tour's first trip into the high Alps with the first crossings of the Galibier, Télégraphe and Allos

Maurice Brocco was ejected by Tour boss Henri Desgrange because Desgrange believed Brocco was riding in the service of other riders for pay, then forbidden by the rules. Desgrange used the term domestique for Brocco, a term we still use for riders who sacrifice themselves for others on their team.
