Hardly a surprise. Untill the mid-1980's it was Western-Europe anyway. In the mid-1980's the first Colombians, Americans and Australians showed up, followed in the late 1980's by some Russians.

There has been a few Japanese riders over the past 101 years too. I wonder why there are no Chinese or Indian riders.
