About the Tour de France (via Wikipedia)
The 2000 Tour de France was the 87th Tour de France, and took place from 1ö23 July 2000. The winner was American cyclist Lance Armstrong. It was his second of seven consecutive Tour de France wins from 1999 to 2005.

The Tour started with an individual time trial in Futuroscope (not an official prologue because it was longer than 8 km) and ended, traditionally, in Paris. The distance travelled was 3663 km (counter-clockwise around France). The Tour passed through Switzerland and Germany.

Before the race started, there were several favourites: Lance Armstrong, after his 1999 Tour de France victory; Jan Ullrich, having won the 1997 Tour de France, finishing second in the 1996 and 1998 tours, and not entering the 1999 Tour due to an injury; and 1998 Tour winner Marco Pantani. Richard Virenque finished 8th place in the 1999 Tour despite bad preparation, and for the 2000 edition he was considered an important rider. Fernando Escart’n, Bobby Julich, Alexander Vinokourov and Alex ZŸlle were also considered contenders.
