The 91st Tour de France (July 3 - July 25, 2004).

Lance Armstrong made history, by being the first person to win six Tours de France.

Going in, Armstrong was the favorite to win his sixth consective Tour de France, with his major competitors seen as being German Jan Ullrich, Spaniards Roberto Heras and Iban Mayo, and fellow Americans Levi Leipheimer and Tyler Hamilton.

The route of the 2004 Tour was a remarkable one. With the two individual time trials both scheduled in the last week, one of them being the epic climb of L'Alpe d'Huez, the directors were hoping for a very close race until the very end of the Tour. For the first time in years, the mountains of the Massif Central made an appearance.
