Maxoo – la mascotte du Tour de France

About This Source - Tour de France

The Tour de France is an annual men’s multiple stage bicycle race primarily held in France, while also occasionally passing through nearby countries. Like the other Grand Tours (the Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta a España), it consists of 21 day-long stages over the course of 23 days. It has been described as “the world’s most prestigious and most difficult bicycle race.”

    From a young age, MAX loved to explore the roads, valleys and summits by bike as he travelled to pick up his father. Together they would sit and watch the sun, as MAX listened to his father’s marvellous stories. As a result, he developed extraordinary cycling skills…

    One day, the Tour de France came to town. Initially, it was the delightful surprise that captured MAXOO’s attention, from the cluster of motorhomes setting up by the side of the road to the procession of klaxons and happy laughter. But when he saw the Tour de France structures being set up, with the emblem of a cyclist on a bicycle with a sun wheel rising into the sky, he was struck by a revelation! The next day, when the winner of the stage crossed the finish line in his yellow leader’s jersey to the sound of a cheering crowd won over by his courage and determination, MAXOO’s conversion was complete; he instantly became a lifelong fan!

    Maxoo est un jeune ado fan de cyclisme au coup de pédale extraordinaire !

    Dès son plus jeune âge, MAX n’hésite pas à prendre son vélo et à sillonner les routes, de vallées en sommets, pour retrouver son père toujours sur les routes. Sur place, il aime observer le soleil, et écouter les histoires toujours plus merveilleuses que son père lui raconte. C’est ainsi qu’il développe des aptitudes hors normes de cycliste !

    Un jour, le Tour de France passa près de chez lui. Emerveillé par le spectacle sportif, et transporté par la bonne humeur populaire, Maxoo devint totalement fan ! Il décida de suivre l’événement, en empruntant le même parcours et en prenant le temps de partager généreusement sa passion du vélo avec le public, qui se mit à l’adorer. Il créait sur son passage un enthousiasme débordant auprès des spectateurs : il incarnait, à lui seul, la dimension spectaculaire et conviviale du Tour de France. Pour sa passion, ses valeurs et son optimisme ; il devint naturellement la mascotte officielle du Tour de France !

    Sa réputation devançant sa générosité, il est attendu partout comme un « super héros » dont il adopte les codes. Sur sa tenue, Maxoo arbore fièrement un « rayon-éclair » – illustrant énergie et spontanéité – et ne quitte jamais son casque à visière rétractable de couleur « jaune » inspirée du Maillot Jaune, et bien évidemment les couleurs du Tour de France.
