Tour de France 2014

The Legend of the Maillot Jaune

Could race founder Henri Desgrange have known when he decided in 1919 to distinguish the Tour de France leader with a yellow-colored racing jersey that he was creating such an icon? Almost 100 years later, the race for the maillot jaune inspires the cycling community as well as my annual TdF Brunch.

Chapeau!

A term which is frequently used by cyclists to indicate respect for another's achievements. By saying "chapeau", which literally means "hat", the rider is doffing his cap to a colleague for a good day's riding.
