Paris Nice

the stage running Paris Nice (also running called to the sun) is considered to season as the first important round travel the cycle racing - and belongs to in the year 2005 the introduced UCI pro route, a series of the most important Radrennen of the yearly.

The one-week stage running is delivered in March, at the same time with the Italian Tirreno Adriatico, in the south of France. It was created by Albert Lejeune, the director of the magazine “Petit journal” and took place 1933 for the first time. Today running the Amaury sport organization is organized, which organizes also the route de France. In analogy to the route de France is distinguished the leading of the total valuation with the yellow leotard (jaune maillot), the leading of the point valuation with becoming green leotard (maillot vert) and the leading of the mountain valuation with the scored mountain leotard (maillot à pois). The best new generation driver may wear the blue leotard (maillot bleu).

In the meantime the start does not take place any longer compellingly in Paris . The profile of the stage running is difficult as relatively for the early time in the season to designate, since several on the program stand for mountain groping with rises of the first category. One of the last stages is usually a mountain time driving in the area around Nice. With seven victories in consequence into the 1980er years is the Irish Sean Kelly record winner of Paris Nice.
