The Tour de France might be the most famous cycling race through France, but it’s not the only one. The professional cycling year begins with the Paris-Nice race, also known as ‘the race to the sun’, which has been going since 1933. It’s a grueling 720 miles (1156 km) over eight stages, which takes place in March.
