The history of Le Tour de France is filled with countless memorable moments. From the early flickering images of Maurice Garin in 1903 to Chris Froome's incredible victory in 2013, this collection looks back at the history of the world's greatest bike race. Along the way we remember the riders who have etched their names into the history of Le Tour, from early protagonists Lucien Petit Breton, Philippe Thijs, Rene Vietto and Antonin Magne to post-war heroes Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. Moving through the second half of the 20th century a wave of great riders emerged, including Jacques Anquetil, the greatest of them all Eddy Merckx and another five-time winner Bernard Hinault. The 1980s saw the incredible duel between Laurent Fignon and Greg LeMond before Miguel Indurain's dominance in the early 90s. Lance Armstrong then won seven in a row from 1999 to 2005 before being stripped of all seven after being found guilty of doping in 2012. British interest in Le Tour has peaked in the most recent editions, thanks to the emergence of Mark Cavendish as one of the race's greatest sprinters, the inaugural British win from Bradley Wiggins in 2012 and Chris Froome's 2013 victory. This action-packed set remembers all of these riders plus many more from the first 100 editions of LeTour de France.
