Ten nations competed for the 1961 Tour de Tunisia - the Tunisian cycle marathon. The last leg-over 170 kilometres - between Sousse and Tunis sizzled under a hot sun. Big crowds in the sports stadium of the capital acclaimed the first in - Wesseling of Holland but though he and his compatriots won the team trophy, the victor of the race for individual performance was Le Baube of France, second in.
The race, organised to enhance sportsmanship in Tunisia, was the third of its kind. This year's foreign entrants, apart from Holland and France, were from West Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and Denmark.
