Le Tour

About the Tour de France - the ultimate cycling endeavor

Captivating is Le Tour de France
We follow the cyclists' keen endurance
Muscular legs to pump the pedals
Many have Olympic medals

The leader of the stage earns yellow
For team and sponsor, a happy fellow
Exerting up the mountain courses
Spectators watching these tour de forces

Racing, coasting down the other side
Always jockeying for position on the ride
The peleton, a safe place in an early stage
But, break away you must, to make front page

At home in HiDef we can see the sweat
A circuit of France they will have met
The cycling world is tense on that July Sunday
To see sweet victory on the Champs-Élysées
