Wochit Headline News - Monday, 17 July 2017
The Tour de France's publicity caravan, known as La Caravane Du Tour, was the brainchild of Tour founder Henri Desgrange. The caravan was invented to divert cyclists from being represented by individual brands and instead be represented by national teams. The caravan is backed by some of France's largest cycling brands and it's become one of the most integral parts of the race, drawing in the largest amount of fans who come to see the 45 minute parade.
