Although perhaps frequently overlooked here in the United States, the Tour de France is an iconic physical competition renowned around the world. Occurring annually in the month of July, the event has been held more than 100 times (hint for the first question 😉) and now takes over 20 days to complete.

The United States hasn't produced an official champion in the event since 1990, but it's still an intense, grueling competition for competitors all over the globe. See how much you know about the Tour de France by taking our quiz below.
