ŠKODA rocks in La Caravane du Tour


Each stage of the Tour de France is headed up by a 12-kilometer caravan of race partners. Come take a look backstage at the famous La Caravane Du Tour. The entire caravan consists of 160 to 170 vehicles lining up to promote the various commercial partners of the world’s most famous cycling race. This huge caravan can stretch to up to 12 kilometres in length and runs through a stage at roughly the same speed as the cyclists, so it can easily be on the track for more than four hours. A bit of a circus on wheels, it always sets off exactly two hours before the start of the race.
