Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

For about 12 years, starting in 1903, the Tour De France route remained unchanged. It formed a nearly perfect outline of France, save for a small indentation in the north west corner. The following 80 or so races featured more dramatic variations, including portions of the route which ranged outside of France altogether. This year's race started in Corsica. 

Designer Sam Potts dug through race map archives to design a poster depicting all 100 routes, with a list of the top three riders of each year. While cycling fans might be attracted to the simplicity of just the race's outline in "Races" version, geography buffs will want to opt for the second "Cities" version of the print, which includes the name of every city the tour passes through.

Congratulations Chris Froome, the poster for the 2013 race is avilable for purchase
