    Nothing's sure about whether this will become reality, but A.S.O. never before sent a press release about a candidate without making it happen in the end!

    The city of Copenhagen thus officially became a candidate, to organise the Grand Départ of the Tour de France somewhere between 2019 and 2021, in collaboration with its surrounding islands.

    This list was not surprising at that time because we found exactly the same teams as last year. Today, it has been announced that a 23rd team will be added to this selection ...

    The terrorist threat: the Interior Ministry takes exceptional measures

    Of course this is not really a 23rd cycling team which will be added to the start list of the Tour in addition to the 22 others. Indeed, we're talking here about the presence of the GIGN (the Groupe d'intervention de la Gendarmerie nationale, the French anti terrorism intervention team) which has been announced today among the special measures taken in the c ...
