Past overall winners of the Tour de France cycle race

Tour de France Winners

The Tour de France is a long distance cycle race around France (and often neighbouring countries as well). The race takes place over three weeks and tests a cyclists abilities to compete in a variety of cycling disciplines including individual and team sprint time trials, mountain climbing, and flat racing spread over a number of stages.

Coloured jerseys are awarded at the end of each stage with different colours signifying different awards. A yellow jersey is worn by the overall leader of the tour, which means the rider with the fastest overall time. A green Jersey is awarded to the cyclist with the most sprint points gained during that stage. Points are won by finishing in the top three at the end of the stage as well as some intermediate points during each stage. A white jersey with red dots is known as the hill climber jersey or polka dot jersey and is awarded to the cyclist who gained the most climbing points. Points are awarded to the first few cyclists to reach the summit of each climb section in a stage, with more points awarded to more difficult climbs. There is also a white jersey for the fastest young cyclist (under 25).

Below lists all the past winners of the Tour de France including their nationality, their team they were riding in and the total time it took to complete the race, along with the total distance raced.
