Tour De France 2017

As you all already must know, the most famous bicycle event in the world has just taken place in France. Of course, it’s Tour the France!

Tour de France is the longest and deffinitely the most amazing race ever!

You also already probably know the winner to this race after the final leap was Chris Froome. It is his fourth victory on this tournament. The second one was Rigoberto Uran, who was only 54 seconds behind Froome and Roman Bardet held the third position.

“Each time I’ve won the Tour it’s been so unique. So different. Such a different battle to get to this moment. Every victory is so special in their own way. This year, I think will be remembered for being the closest and most hard-fought battle between the GC rivals.”

The last leap, Stage 21 had a different winner. It was Dylan Groenewegen from The Netherlands. this was his first time winning a Stage of Tour the France, and as he said, a childhood dream come true.

 “This is a perfect day. It’s a dream come true, ever since I was a kid I watched the Champs Elysees stage of the Tour de France on TV, so to win here today is an amazing feeling.”

We would like to congratulate to both of them for the amazing performance and a great season behind them. Both of them remain our heroes and true sport inspiration for many cyclers, as well as other sportsmen and women around the world. To take part in the race as big as Tour de France must be an amazing feeling, and only a few get are given that chance in a lifetime. So, these resuts should be more than a good reason for them to celebrate.

We are happy we could watch a season as thrilling and amazing as this one, and are sure hoping the next one will be at least half this good and interesting.

Once again, congrats to all!
