The most epic attacks in the history of cycling have been carried out in the French countryside since the Merckx climbs, the induraín tit, or the pitfalls of Lance Armstrong, whose titles from 1999 to 2005 were declared deserts because of doping. After more than 5,000 kilometers, the wearer of the yellow jersey is crowned in the Champs Elysees Parisians; in the last two editions, it has been the British Chris Froome the winner.

  1. Giro de Italia

Since 1909, the best cyclists in the world have traveled all over Italy, from Padania to Sicily. It was canceled during the periods of World Wars, but since 1946, cyclists continue to cross Italian streets every month of May. Alfredo Binda and Fausto Coppi and Eddie Merckx are the Masters of the ‘maglia rosa,’ each crowned five times. The last champion was the local Vincenzo Nibali.
