The first bicycle race was held in France in 1869. Competitive events today include road races, track races, off-road mountain bike races, and youth BMX races.
Road racing is the oldest type of bicycle competition. There are several formats of road racing, including stage races, one-day events, and time trials.
Stage races can last for weeks and cover thousands of kilometers. Each day's race is called a stage. The rider with the lowest result time after all the stages is the overall winner. The Tour de France, which lasts about three weeks and covers about 3200km, is the most prestigious bicycle race in the world. The length of the Tour de France varies, as does the number of stages, but in recent years, the race has featured about 20 stages. Cyclists generally have two or three days off for rest.
One-day races usually last from four to seven hours and span from 160 to 380 km. Examples of one-day races include the world championship road race, the Olympic road race, and European spring classics such as Paris-Roubaix.
In time trials, the object is to cycle as fast as possible from one point to another, while being timed by a clock. There are usually two or three time trials stages in the Tour de France.

Read the reading passage and mark the letter A,B,C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the following questions.
As Christmas evolved in the United States, new customs were adopted and many old ones were reworked. The legend of Santa Claus, for example, had origins in Europe and was brought by Dutch settlers to New York in the early 18th century. Traditionally, Santa Claus - from the Dutch Sinter Klaas - was depicted as a tall, dignified, religious figure riding a white horse through the air. Known as Saint Nicholas in Germany, he was usually accompanied by Black Peter, an elf who punished disobedient children. In North America he eventually developed into a fat, jolly old gentleman who had neither the religious attributes of Saint Nicholas nor the strict disciplinarian character of Black Peter.
Santa's transformation began in 1823, when a New York newspaper published the poem A Visit from Saint Nicholas, which Clement Clark Moore had written to amuse his daughter. The poem introduced many Americans to the story of a kindly saint who flew over housetops in a reindeer-drawn sleigh. Portraits and drawings of Santa Claus by American illustrator Thomas Nast further strengthened the legend during the second half of the 19th century. Living at the North Pole and assisted by elves, the modern Santa produced and delivered toys to all good children. By the late 19th century he had become such a prominent figure of American folklore that in 1897, when Virginia O'Hanlon wrote to the New York Sun newspaper asking if Santa was real, she received a direct answer: "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus".
