Stage races in cycling: What does that mean?

A cycling stage race is an event lasting several days in which a given route is divided into several stages and several riders race over this route. The race is won by the rider who has the best time at the end of each stage and thus minimizes the time over all stages. In addition to the winner, there are other classifications that are taken into account, including classifications such as leading the overall classification, leading the climb, the sprint classification and leading the junior classification.

Stage races take place all over the world and are an important part of the professional cycling scene. The most famous stage races are the Tour de France, the Vuelta a España and the Giro d'Italia. These races are contested by the best cyclists in the world and offer spectacular scenery and many exciting moments.
