Is this your first year of watching the Tour de France? Even if it isn't, you might have a few burning questions about some aspects of the race. If you're not clear about the history of the Tour and how and why it first started, what an echelon is, what the different classification jerseys mean, and many of the other peculiar details of the the world's greatest bike race, this lovely animation explains all.
