Video: The Tour de France Explained

Regular readers of The Adventure Blog know that I'm a big fan of the Tour de France and follow it closely each year. Inevitably, I find myself explaining the race to those who don't follow it and don't really "get" what it is all about. The video below does a really good job of introducing new viewers to  Le Tour, which can be a bit confusing to figure out if you don't know the terms, the various jerseys, the race strategy, and so on. The animation used in the clip is a lot of fun, and while the narrator's voice is a bit difficult to understand at times, the video does a great job of bringing newbies up to speed. If you've ever wanted to know what the big deal over the Tour was all about, this will give you an idea.
