Its first edition took place in 1903 to increase the sales of the newspaper L’Auto. Since then, the race has taken place every year, except during the two world wars.

Broadcast on television in 190 countries, the Tour de France is the third most watched sporting event, behind the Summer Olympics and the Football World Cup.
