Tour de France 2011
2011 Tour de France starts these days. Gets underway while in the Vendée region of western France. The pre-race favorites are without a doubt defending champion Alberto Contador of Spain and Andy Schleck of Luxembourg, who has finished second to Contador the past two years.
As usual, the 2011 Tour will almost certainly be won or lost while in the mountains, and this year’s program features the famed Alpe-d’Huez, which has become missing through the route the earlier two years. That each one crucial summit finish is available in Stage 19, two days prior to the ride into Paris, and will almost certainly establish who stands atop the podium within the Champs Élysées.
On an annual basis, the Tour is probably the most watched events in the world. There’ll be greater than 2000 journalists available to cover the race and it really is broadcast in 188 countries across the world. In addition, an believed 12-15 million fans will line the stages with the race, cheering their favorite riders on towards the finish line.
