In early 20th century France, anyone envisaging a near 2,500 km long cycle race across the country would have been widely viewed as unhinged.
But that didn't stop GÃ©o LefÃ¨vre, a journalist with L'Auto magazine at the time, from proceeding with his inspired plan.
His editor, Henri Desgrange, was bold enough to believe in the idea and to throw his backing behind the Tour de France.
And so it was that, on 1 July 1903, sixty pioneers set out on their bicycles from Montgeron.
After six mammoth stages (Nantes - Paris, 471 km!), only 21 ÂroutiersÂ, led by Maurice Garin, arrived at the end of this first epic.
Having provoked a mixture of astonishment and admiration, le Tour soon won over the sporting public and the roadside crowds swelled.
The French people took to their hearts this unusual event which placed their towns, their countryside and even their mountains, in the spotlight.
Le Tour has always moved with the times.
It has opened itself up to foreign countries with the onset of globalization.
Over a hundred years after its inception, le Tour continues as a beacon of athletic strength and courage.
