I am discussing the Tour de France and would like to describe it as "the world's greatest cycle".
I think that i could say "le cycle le plus grande du monde"... but i would like to make it sound as sophisticated as possible and i do not feel that this does this very well?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thankyou very much

    Be careful: "circuit" in cyclism means "sur piste" or "critérium" (several laps of the same circuit like for the world championship for instance).

    If you speak about a "tour", it's "une course à étapes": "le tour de France est la plus renommée des courses à étapes". "Le tour de France" can't be a circuit.
