June 26, 2021 - July 18, 2021 - A mais prestigiada corrida do ciclismo começou em 1903 como forma de melhorar as vendas de um jornal desportivo, mas logo se tornou popular. A característica definidora da prova de 2021 é a inclusão de uma dupla ascensão do icónico Mont Ventoux e uma visita a Andorra.

Cycling’s most prestigious race began in 1903 when Henri Desgrange, editor of L’Auto sports newspaper and a keen cyclist, came up with the idea of a major cycling race to boost sales.
L’Auto was printed on yellow paper and in 1919 Desgrange initiated the yellow jersey to identify the race leader. It has become one of the most coveted prizes in sport.
The race soon became immensely popular in its own right and has been held annually ever since, with the exception of the two world wars. The 2020 race is the 108th edition.
