FOR THE FIRST TIME, PANINI INTRODUCES A COLLECTION DEDICATED TO THE TOUR DE FRANCE!
THE ONLY OFFICIAL COLLECTION
Panini sets off on the roads of the Tour! With this brand-new collection, millions of fans who passionately follow this legendary race will get even closer to their favourite champions. An officially sanctioned album will present the 22 teams that will compete for the Yellow Jersey. Riders, managers, statistics, race-route, stage towns and cities, climbs and records… You will find everything you need to stay up to speed on the 2019 edition!
STICKERS… AND CARDS
In all, there are 352 stickers to collect, including 32 specials. For each of the 22 teams, you have to find - and paste - the 14 riders who could be the major contenders of this competition. But the Tour de France is not just about the cyclists! Above all, it is a journey through the most beautiful towns and mountains France has to offer. Panini hasn’t forgotten and is reserving several pages of the collection to the 21 stages that will be contested this summer. Not to mention the 42 new maps presenting the main mountains, the highlights of the history of the Tour or the bikes and jerseys of the different teams.
LEGENDS, MEMORIES AND AN ANNIVERSARY
In addition to celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Yellow Jersey, this 106th edition will start in Brussels, which will be an opportunity to pay tribute to Belgian legend Eddy Merckx, who won the Tour de France five times. Two pages of this album will be dedicated to the “Cannibal” in addition to other sections focusing more on the history of the race. Who is the youngest winner? Who claimed the most podiums? Who won the most stages? Who are the other five-time winners? This ESSENTIAL album answers all these questions!
