When cyclists race in the Tour de France, how many calories, on average, do they burn in a day?
The newspaper ‘L’Auto’ organized the first Tour de France in 1903 as a means of increasing sales. The race has run annually since then, except when stopped during the World Wars that gripped Europe. It is mostly held in France, but the route occasionally takes the cyclists through nearby countries. The reach of the Tour de France began to expand globally as it gained in prominence and popularity. It now boasts competitors from all over the world who participate in the race each year.
