Tour de France

The Tour de France ended last Sunday in Paris with Alberto Contador from Spain winning. The Tour de France is the most difficult bike race going through the French countryside. The race started in the early part of July this year in Monaco and took riders along the Mediterranean to Spain back across the Pyrenees to the French Alps then up to Paris for the finish. Andy Schleck of Luxembourg was the second place overall winner. Lance Armstrong, a seven time winner of the race, came back from retirement to finish in third place.
