The Tour the France does not always start in France. In 2010 it will start in the Netherlands, Rotterdam at the third of Juli.
Paris. It doesn't always end in Paris, but it mostly does!
There is still one race being held each year.
The race, which covers a number of stages set out over about three weeks, is generally held in July.
what is the question? IS there a Lanterne Rouge? Then yes, there is. It is the last place finisher in Paris at the end of the three-week race.
Le Tour de France stops at Champs-Èlysèes
The ceremonial end is always in Paris, as it has been since 1975, with the final stage raced along the Champs-Elysees. However, the real end - ie, when the overall Tour winner is decided - changes every year as the Tour's route changes. In 2009, it finished at the summit of Mount Ventoux after a climb made both physically and psychologically gruelling by the hot and windy conditions often found on the mountain and by the infamy it earned when it claimed the life of English rider Tom Simpson in 1967.
The Iditorad race always ends at Nome, a big town in Alaska.
Any web search will tell you what the Tour de France is and if you check out the sports channel, the race is being run even now as I type this. That being said, I will not go into all the Tour de France is... The Tour de Okinawa is a smaller bike race run here on the island of Okinawa Japan. This is pretty much where the similarities end. They're both bicycle races.On to your question of how they are different...They are in different countries on different continents. (One in France, one in Okinawa, Japan.)They are different lengths. The Tour de France is a race run over 19 days (21 counting days of rest) and covers 3,445 kilometers (2,141 mi), including 93 kilometers (58 mi) in time trials. The Tour de Okinawa covers 200 kilometers (124 mi). What do you expect though, our island is only about 65 miles top to bottom and between 3-16 miles wide depending on where you measure. (We're not that large.)The Tour de France is run in the summer whereas the Tour de Okinawa is run in November. (You don't really want to race a bike here in the summer... though some do... it gets REALLY hot and humid.)I hope this is enough to get you started... A couple of websites to help you go further are "www.letour.fr/indexus.html" for the Tour de France, and "www.tour-de-okinawa.jp/english/index.html" for the Tour de Okinawa.Cheers!
The final stages of the tour de France traditionnally end on the Champs-Elysées avenue, in Paris France. The finish line isn't up the avenue near the Arc De Triomphe, but rather near the bottom of the avenue, just up the Rond-Point.
I could not find reference to sound tracks for the sport Tour De France. However, there is an electronic music group called Kraftwerks that has an album called Tour De France Soundtracks that was released in 1983. The music for the Tour 2013 on Eurosport is Nic Chagall - What you need.
I think that there would be a finish line and a big crowd waiting BUT I'm not to sure!
The Tour de France is traced back from Dreyfus Affair, a cause celebre which dividen France at the end of the 19th century over the innocence of Alfred Dreyfus, a soldier convicted - though exonerated alter - of selling military secrets to the Germans.
Yes. The route changes from year to year; some stages may start or end outside of France. It is quite common for some stages to start or end in Spain or Italy. This year (2011), stage 17 ended and stage 18 started at Pinerolo, Italy. In 2010, the Tour started in the Netherlands and the first three stages passed through Belgium. In 2009, the Tour started in Monaco and had stopovers in Spain and Switzerland. In 2007, the prologue to the Tour was held in London.

It is held all over France and has a different route each year. The route now always finishes in Paris and passes through the Alps and the Pyrenees each year.It is in FranceSlightly different from year to year. You've gotta specify the year to get a decent answer.France, but Stage 1 or Prolouge has started in various other cities/countries in Europe such as London and Monaco.The route of the Tour de France changes every year. However, it is always designed so as to have its mountain stages held in both the Alps and the Pyrenees, and its last stage will always end on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.
