Stage 1 on the 1904 TdF was 467km. "The 1904 Tour was of the of the most scandalous and sinister in history, tainted by plots,scams, booby-traps made of nails, surreptitious train journeys ..." The results were not released until December 2nd. Maurice Garin was stripped of a stage win and the yellow jersey. The new winner was Henri Cornet, aged 20, who had come in 5th.
