It’s that time again, cycling fans. The three-week Tour de France is upon us.

The world’s largest annual sporting event starts this year in Düsseldorf, Germany, on Saturday, July 1, and finishes in Paris on Sunday, July 23.

After a couple of stages in Germany, La Grand Boucle makes stops in Belgium and Luxembourg before heading down into France.

Chris Froome is again the favorite, but Richie Porte, Nairo Quintana, and Alberto Contador, among others, could surprise.

Here are some fun numbers to whet your appetite. Vive le Tour!
