The 97th annual Tour de France starts in Rotterdam on July 3rd and zigzags through Belgium before continuing its 2,237-mile route through the Pyrenees, the Alps, Burgundy and Champagne to the finish line on the Champs-Elysées on July 25. And the big question is: Can Armstrong win again? Record holder for the number of victories on the tour, Lance Armstrong is back this year, hoping to win an eighth yellow jersey just a year after finishing third behind Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck.
