Backpedalling through the archives – 1919 Tour Quick Facts:
5,560 km raced at an average speed of 24.056 km/hr, the slowest Tour ever.
67 starters and only 10 classified finishers. Eugène Christophe was leading the Tour until he broke his fork (again!) in the penultimate stage, which alone cost him 70 minutes. He then crashed again in the same stage and then suffered many flat tires in the final stage. In stage 10 Christophe is generally thought to have worn the Tour’s first yellow jersey.

At its heart, the Tour remains just that, a vehicle to sell tires, shoes, bikes, telephones and countless other items that the eager sponsors of the teams and the race want to promote.

Zagreb is capital city of Croatia
I’ve been living in Canada for more than 20 years now, but I always return to my home town Zagreb and never have enough of it! Zagreb is my city, because I was born there. I carry so many memories, that where ever I go around the town, something always reminds me of something from the years when I was growing up on these streets – good old memories…
