The hell of Northern Paris - Roubaix The Cote d'Azur and Saint Tropez The Alps and the Pyrenees Last stage Champs-Elysees Galibier and Tourmalet Dancing even on the top Bicycling at high gear Final sprint at the finish Flat tire on the paving-stones The bicycle is repaired quickly The peloton is regrouped Comrades and friendship

Chris from Germany Kraftwerk were ahead of their time and had a lot of good songs before they released Tour De France in 1983. They intended to release Techno Pop in 1983 and they had still made videos and promotions. There were also ads in music magazines. However many problems and such things caused the band to not release the album. The songs were recycled for their 1986 album Electric Cafe. Tour De France is awesome and really catchy. In 1983 they had a lot of competition with synth pop bands but they were still good and innovative. The Francoise Kevorkian remix of the song is one of the best.
The song was released in 1983 and had minor success but it was a household name among the breakdance scene and so the song was rereleased in the 1980s.
