There are three Grand Tour cycling races:-

  1. In Italy, the Giro d'Italia
  2. In France, the Tour de France
  3. In Spain, the Vuelta Ciclista a España

This is the order they are raced in each year.

All three are in the "ProTour Calendar", that is they are part of the UCI ProTour.

They got the name of Grand Tour because they are some of the oldest, hardest and longest stage races in the calendar.
