How to watch live TV coverage and follow the race stages


Throughout the month of September, the world of cycling will focus on France as the 107th edition of the Tour de France will travel the length and breadth of the country, making its villages and towns yellow as the large loop heads for Paris.After a start of 3,470 km from Nice, it follows summit finishes on Les Orcières-Merlette and Mont Aigoual on stages 5 and 6 before the race heads towards the Pyrenees. A new mountain stage will follow in the Alps before the penultimate stage of the race sees the riders tackle the rise of the Planche des Belles Filles in an individual time trial.

Those who are Eurosport subscribers are in luck, as the self-proclaimed ‘home of cycling’ broadcasts every stage, while the recently launched GCN Race Pass app will also show the action. In addition to Eurosport, terrestrial channels ITV and the Welsh language S4C will also be broadcasting live with their best packages coming out each evening.

Alternatively, if you get stuck at work, you can follow all the action, as it unfolds, in our daily live blogs which will include news, analysis and feedback. Telegraph Sport will also provide full details of the results.

Finally, every night The cycling podcast will publish a daily roundup of what is happening on and off the roads of Paris while every day of the week throughout the race, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau will produce their excellent KM0 episodes.
