Le tour de France

After many many years, Barcelona will host the Tour de France. The world’s most important cyclist event will count with 4 cyclist that have already won at least one edition,  something that did not occur since Miguel Induráin‘s first win in 1991.

Carlos Sastre and Alberto Contador will assume the favourite role as they are the winners of the last 2 editions, but we should never forget another spaniard Óscar Pereiro (winner in 2006) and of course the greatest Tour cyclist ever, Lance Armstrong who won the course 7 times in a row (from 1999 to 2005). Armstrong (Austin Texas, 18/09/1971) will be the most impredictible cyclist as after being retired for 3 years, he has come back to fight. Maybe he will not win but, for those we love this sport and know him, we know he is a winner and he has not come to relax.
