The 67th Tour de France took place from June 26th to July 20th, 1980. It led over 3945.5 km on 22 stages. After the Dutchman Joop Zoetemelk had already finished second five times (in the 1970 , 1971 , 1976 , 1978 and 1979 tours ), the now 33-year-old won the French tour in 1980 . 130 racers took part in the tour, of which 85 were classified.

Race course

The prologue of the tour took place in Germany for the second time, after Cologne in 1965 this time in Frankfurt am Main . Then two half-stages led to Wiesbaden and Frankfurt again.

Defending champion Bernard Hinault started the race as the clear favorite and won three stages early on. In the Pyrenees he took over the yellow jersey from the Belgian Rudy Pevenage , who had been leading for a long time , but had to give up the race as the leader due to illness.

This cleared the way for the "Tour of the Dutch": Joop Zoetemelk won the overall standings ahead of his compatriot Hennie Kuiper , there were a total of twelve Dutch stage wins by seven different drivers.
