    The tour is 100 years old in 2003 right?

    I read that the TDF is started in 1903 , so it should be 100 years old in 2003 , but i read somewhere that the 2005 TDF is the 92nd...can anyone explain?

    They lost 10 tours due to World War 1 and World War 2. 2003 was the 100th anniversary, but 2012 will be the 100th race.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
