Three Riders Reach or Surpass Merkx Records and More from the 2021 Tour de France

184 riders took off from Brest on June 26th to start the 2021 edition of the Tour de France. Three weeks later, 141 riders took the start to complete the Tour in Paris on the Champs-Elysees.

Love and Peace: Five music documentaries that make me love the 1960s
