  • 125 - From the Archives: Doping in the Tour de France - Sports Bizarre

    With just a few days to go, we look back at the history of doping in the Tour De France.

    From the first Tour De France, riders were putting all kinds of things in their bodies, caffeine, strychnine, cocaine and alcohol.

    Drugs were so much part of the sport that the 1930 rulebook, given to all riders, reminded them that drugs would not be provided by the organisers.

    Titus O’Reily and Mick Molloy look at the use of doping in the Tour De France from 1903 until the Festina Affair in 1998, the year before Lance Armstrong ‘won’ his seven consecutive yellow jackets.

  • 123 - From the Archive: Tour de France, the Early Years - Sports Bizarre

    With LeTour entering its final week, we revisit one of our first episodes, looking at the early years of the Tour De France.

    The early years of the Tour De France were a hot mess, with a spiked bottle of lemonade, itching powder put in cyclists’ shorts, riders taking rides in cars and trains, attempted murder and pitched battles between cyclists and spectators.

    Beginning in 1903 as a marketing exercise to boost the circulation of the newspaper L’Auto, the first was won by Maurice-François Garin, who knocked an opponent off their bike, and then jumped on the wheels so they couldn’t ride it anymore.

    The second Tour would result in the top four finishers all being disqualified, with the reasons never made public.

    Titus O’Reily and Mick Molloy look at the early years of the Tour De France, and how those bizarre early races would set the tone for one of the most popular sporting events in the world.
