Mapping Le Tour charts the course of every race route in cycling’s most prestigious event, including a special section on this year’s 100th Tour de France.

With a map of each edition of the Tour de France, along with photographs, text on the history of the race, and lists of the stages, winners and key statistics, Mapping Le Tour is essential reading for any cycling fan.

Each Tour de France race map is accompanied by statistics, including:

• Average speed
• Jersey winners

Twenty of Le Tour’s iconic locations – many of which have featured in the Etape du Tour – are put under the spotlight, and an extended section on the 2013 race is included, with detailed maps and statistics on each of this year’s stages.
