It consisted of 20 stages over 4140.4 km, ridden at an average speed of 33.918 km/h.[1] After winning the 1973 Vuelta a España and the 1973 Giro d'Italia, Eddy Merckx did not participate in the Tour to avoid angry French fans. In 1973, there were two team classifications. The team classification based on the three best times per stage was still in use, and the team points classification, which was calculated by added the three best stage rankings, would be calculated until 1988.

However, when the 1973 Tour route was announced in December 1972, the organisation had included three more mountains compared to 1972.[2] Participants The winner of the previous four editions, Eddy Merckx had changed sponsors to the Italian Molteni. His contract said that he had to start in the 1973 Vuelta a España and the 1973 Giro d'Italia, and Merckx thought it was impossible to start in three grand tours in one year, so he stayed away from the Tour. Ocana, who was in great shape, was now the main favourite, with Fuente, Poulidor and Thevenet as his biggest threats.[3] Ocana was not the clear favorite; he had already crashed out of the Tour three times, and he was seen as fragile.[4] Zoetemelk had changed teams, because he did not have the full support of his team leader.[4] The Italian teams did not join the 1973 Tour de France, because no top French cyclist joined the 1973 Giro d'Italia. This meant that world champion Marino Basso and former Tour winner Felice Gimondi were absent.[5] Race details Zoetemelk won the opening prologue, one second ahead of Poulidor. In the first part ofthe next stage, Teirlink won and took over the lead. Ocana and Herman Van Springel fell down when a dog crossed the road, but both suffered no serious damage.[4] In the second part of that stage, Van Springel bridged the gap to Catieau, who had escaped. Van Springel did all the work to stay away, while Catieau did not help his team captain's rival. They stayed away until the end of the stage, where Catieau won the sprint, and Van Springel became the new race leader.[4] In the third stage, a group with Guimard and Ocana escaped. Van Springel, Zoetemelk, Fuentes, Thevenet and Poulidor were not in that group, and had to chase them. The group stayed away, Guimard won the sprint and Catieau became the race leader. More important for the final result was that Ocana won more than two minutes on Zoetemelk, and more than seven minutes on Fuente.[4][6] In stage 7, when the first mountains were climbed, Ocana attacked, and only Zoetemelk could follow. A few kilometers from the summit, Zoetemelk had to let Ocana go, and Ocana finished solo. Ocana became the new race leader, almost three minutes ahead of Zoetemelk.[4] In the eighth stage, Ocana and Fuente both attacked. Ocana and Fuente did not like each other, and when Fuente stopped working, Ocana was angry, especially when Fuente passed him just before the top of the Izoard to steal the points for the mountain classification. When Fuente had a flat tire, Ocana did not wait for him, and left him behind, beating him by one minute at the finish line. All the others were far behind: Thevenet and Martinez followed after seven minutes, the other pre-race favourites after twenty minutes.[4][7] In the thirteenth stage, Poulidor crashed, and was taken away with a helicopter.[4] In the sixteenth stage, the cyclists were slower than expected, and finished one hour after the latest time schedule. The train that they should have taken had already left, and they had to use buses.[4] In the time trial in stage 17, Fuente lost his second place in the general classification to Thevenet. Fuente tried to take it back in the mountain stage 18, but he failed and even lost some time.[4] Doping cases Three cyclists tested positive during the 1973 Tour de France: Barry Hoban, after the 9th stage[8] Claude Baud, after the 13th stage[9] Michel Roques, after the 18th stage[10] All three received a fine of 1000 Swiss Francs, one month suspension and ten minutes penalty time in the general classification. Stages The 1973 Tour de France started on 30 June, and had two rest days, in Divonne-les-Bains and Pyrénées 2000.[11] Joop Zoetemelk, the winner of the prologue.
