The Tour de France begins tomorrow, and will begin with a full length road stage for a change. Everyone will be contending to wear the yellow jersey. A great way to start the Tour.
Also tomorrow, we will launch another Italian Cycling Journal contest. This one for an autographed set of "The Story of the Tour de France", Volumes I and II by Bill and Carol McGann. All the questions will be related to Italian riders in the Tour de France.
Bill has provided 14 questions to challenge you. The rules are simple: first 14 correct answers (which Bill has provided and you must match) receives the books.
