VeloNews | The Guinness of Oz: Credit where credit is due

Rupert Guinness throws his support behind more recognition of the guy who actually came up with the idea for the Tour:

But truth is, credit should go to Géo Lefèvre - the guy who came up with the idea in the first place. Had he not thought up the Tour de France, not only would there be no monument in Desgrange's name, but I wouldn't be sitting here in L'Alpe d'Huez writing these words, you wouldn't be reading them on the Internet, nor would any riders, media, fans or sponsors being following the great race.
