CyclingEdit

The Tour de France was instituted by the newspaper L'Auto in 1903.[2] The paper was closed after World War II because of its links with the occupying Germans and a new paper, L'Équipe, took over. L'Équipe (now part of EPA) organised the Tour until the race was taken over by its parent company, ASO.
