Tour de France History and 2021 Schedule

Though many think of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal when talking about the Tour de France, the race has seen its share of other scandals. In the second year of the race, 1904, returning champion Maurice Garin is quoted as saying “I’ll win the Tour de France, provided I’m not murdered before we get to Paris”. Garin was almost killed while racing. He did go on to win the race, but he was disqualified for an unknown event. There was speculation that Garin took a train after the problems he had early on, but that may be just a story. Other controversies include banned substance raids, injuries, equipment failures, cheating, betrayal, and even a death during the 1967 race.
