    The Souvenir Henri Desgrange is a special prize in the Tour de France that has been awarded annually since 1947 and is named after Henri Desgrange, the first director of the round.

    The prize is awarded to the rider who first reaches a certain point in the lap (in the stage). Initially this could have been in any place, but for some time it has always been at the top of a mountain or mountain - the Galibier if it is part of the Tour, in other cases usually the 'roof of the Tour': the highest point (above sea level) that is achieved.
