What is the most famous bike race in the world?

The most famous cycling race in the world is undoubtedly the Tour de France. The annual stage race is not only an absolute highlight in the cycling world, but also very popular with fans and spectators worldwide.

The Tour de France has been held in July every year since 1903 and leads through France and sometimes other countries over a total of 21 stages. The drivers have to cover a total of more than 3,500 kilometers and master demanding mountain passes such as Mont Ventoux or the Col du Tourmalet.

The Tour de France has produced some legendary riders over the years, such as five-time winner Jacques Anquetil, the "cannibal" Eddy Merckx or the current record winner, Brit Chris Froome. But scandals like the Lance Armstrong doping scandal also shaped the Tour de France.

Despite this, the Tour de France remains the most famous and important cycling race in the world, attracting millions of spectators and fans every year.
