Prologue[edit]

This years tour does not seem to have a Prologue. Thats rather unusual, can't remember there not being one. Can somebody with a good reference add that to the article? Calistemon (talk) 00:51, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

Found one. Calistemon (talk) 01:06, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

Prize Money Section[edit]

The following does not make sense but I can't work out what it's meant to say.

"The stage winner is awarded 8,000€. The money is given up to the first 20 finishers are awarded 200€. Should the stage be a time trial, the winner is awarded 10,000€ for the stage win. The money gradually decreases, with the 20th finisher receiving 200€. The intermediate sprint gives away 1,500€ to the first person to cross it, there is one sprint each stage. Money is also awarded for crossing the categorized climbs, for the best young rider of each stage, and the most combative rider, and the best team of the stage" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.59.119.225 (talk) 12:39, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

I have rewritten the section Racklever (talk) 15:38, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Tense[edit]

A lot of this article is written in the future tense - can this now be updated? -- Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 05:34, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Evans[edit]

I think Evans held the yellow jersey only in the last stage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.134.122.58 (talk) 12:25, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

That's correct, and the article reflects that as far as I can see. The classification leadership table shows who held the jersey after the stage. If it showed who held it during that stage, the whole row would be blank for the first stage, which would be a little bit... awkward. Basically, it reflects who stood on the podium to collect which prize, and Evans went up to collect the yellow jersey twice – after the time trial, and on the podium in Paris. Were you referring to that section? Buttons to Push Buttons (talk | contribs) 12:33, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Final General Classification[edit]

all other pages on the tour de france up to 2010 list all the riders' standings in the general classification in a collapsable table below the top 10. this one needs one as well — Preceding unsigned comment added by Celebi12 (talkcontribs) 05:13, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
