Spòrs: an Tour de France

Presenter: Angela Mackay

[ANGELA] 'S iongantach gu bheil mòran rudan ann an spòrs cho duilich ris an Tour de France, agus 's e fir a tha fìor làidir a bhios an sàs ann.

B' ann ann an 1910 a chaidh an Tour de France dha na beanntan àrda an toiseach. Bha an duine a bha ag ullachadh na rèis aig mullach beinne a' coimhead nam fear, is iad a' strì. Thuirt an duine a bhuannaich ris: "a mhurtair".

Bha na baidhsagalan uabhasach trom an uair sin, agus cha robh orra ach aon ghèar. Nan deigheadh càil ceàrr, dh'fheumadh an luchd-spòrs fhèin a bhith a' càradh nam baidhsagalan.

Ach, bidh an oidhirp a tha daoine a' dèanamh an-diugh a cheart cho mòr. Thuirt fear eile a bhuannaich an turas mu bhith rèiseadh: "Chan eil e a' fàs càil nas fhasa - tha thu dìreach a' fàs nas luaithe".

'S dòcha gu bheil an aon rud fìor mun turas fhèin. An-diugh, tha an turas a' dol airson trì seachdainean agus tha e còrr air dà mhìle mìle a dh'fhaid. Chan eil fhios cò ris a tha e coltach dhan luchd-baidhsagail a bhith a' coimhead nan rathaidean - mìltean mòra air am beulaibh - gun luaidh air a bhith a' dìreadh nam beann!

Bidh e uaireannan gu math teth air na rathaidean ìosal, ach ged a tha an turas a' gabhail àite as t-samhradh, 's urrainn dhan t-sìde fàs cho fuar anns na beanntan 's gum bi i a' cur an t-sneachda.

Tha farpais ann airson lèintean - lèine bhuidhe airson an duine as fheàrr uile gu lèir, lèine uaine airson an duine a gheibh an àireamh as motha de chomharran agus lèine spotach, a bhios a' dol chun an duine as fheàrr anns na beanntan.

'S e aon duine a-riamh a fhuair na trì lèintean anns an aon bliadhna - Eddy Merckx às a' Bheilg. Bhuannaich Merckx an turas gu lèir còig trupan.

Bha an t-Ameireaganach Lance Armstrong na bu shoirbheachaile buileach. Bhuannaich esan seachd tiotalan an sreath a chèile. Bha casaidean a' nochdadh na aghaidh co-cheangailte ri drugaichean airson bhliadhnaichean, agus nuair a thuirt e nach biodh e a' sabaid nan casaidean tuilleadh, nochd an naidheachd gun robh e a' call nan tiotalan.

Tha drugaichean air a bhith timcheall bho thòisich an turas, agus tha iad air cuid a mharbhadh. Thuirt fear de ghaisgich na spòrs anns an linn mu dheireadh, Fausto Coppi, gun robh e a' gabhail uiread de philichean 's gum biodh a chasan a' dol mun cuairt an taobh ceàrr.

Tha dòchas ann nach eil drugaichean cho cumanta an-diugh, gu bheil an spòrs a' fàs nas glaine, agus gun tòisich linn ùr às dèidh cùis Armstrong. 'S e tìde a dh'innseas an tachair sin.

Sport: The Tour de France

Presenter: Angela Mackay

[ANGELA] There can't be many sporting events that are as difficult as the Tour de France, and the men who compete in it are extremely strong.

It was in 1910 that the Tour de France first took to the high mountains. The race organiser stood at the top of a mountain watching the men as they toiled.

The winner said to him: "you murderer." The bicycles in those days were very heavy, and only had one gear. If anything went wrong, the sportsmen had to repair their own bicycles.

But the effort expended by modern riders is just as great. Another man who won the tour said of racing: "It doesn't get any easier - you just get faster."

Perhaps the same is true of the tour itself. Today, the tour runs for three weeks and is over two thousand miles long. No-one knows what it's like for the cyclists to see the roads - miles and miles of them ahead - and that's not including climbing the hills!

It's sometimes very warm on the lower roads, but although the race takes place in summer, the weather can get cold enough in the mountains for snow to fall.

There's competition for shirts - a yellow shirt for the man who is best all round, a green shirt for the man who scores the highest number of points and a spotted shirt goes to the man who is best in the mountains.

Only one man has ever won the three shirts in the same year - Eddy Merckx from Belgium. Merckx won the tour five times in all.

The American rider, Lance Armstrong, was even more successful. He won seven titles in a row. Allegations were made for many years that he had misused drugs, and when he declared that he would no longer fight the allegations, it was announced that he would be stripped of his titles.

Drugs have been around since the tour first began, and they have caused some deaths. One of the sport's heroes of the last century, Fausto Coppi, said he took so many pills that one day he would take the wrong pill and pedal backwards.

It is hoped that drug use is less common today, that the sport is becoming cleaner, and that a new era will begin following the case of Armstrong. Time will tell if that happens.
