The 95th Tour de France is upon us, starting in Brest in the north west of France on 5 July and concluding in Paris three weeks later.
BikeRadar.com, now just over a year old, has put together a jam-packed Tour de France section to help you follow the race over the next three weeks. This will be updated with the latest stage reports and news as they happen. Plus there are detailed stage descriptions, profiles and stage maps from our sister site Bikely.com. Just click on ‘Stage 1’, ‘Stage 2’ under the ‘Stages’ section in the middle of the page to find these.
There are also links to stage reports and a complete blow-by-blow live report of each stage, courtesy of AFP and our (bigger) sister site, Cyclingnews.com. And as the stage unfolds, the latest live reports will appear in a small box on the top right hand side of the Tour section and the main homepages on BikeRadar.
Those of you who followed our popular Tour de France podcasts last year will be pleased to note that they’re back again this time around, and they promise to be even better. Hosted by Brad Gibson, they will feature the expert analyses of Procycling’s deputy editor Ellis Bacon, features editor Dan Friebe and editor-in-chief Peter Cossins, as well as rider quotes and other snippets of interest. The podcasts can be found a little way down the Tour page on the right hand side. You can also subscribe to them via iTunes.
The inestimable Friebe will also be filing a daily blog in the Procycling blog, while on the BikeRadar blog we’ll have regular entries from Martyn Jones, a 34 year-old Briton who’s riding the entire route of the Tour for charity, plus our own blogs.
We’ll be getting in-depth gear coverage at the Tour thanks to our men on the ground, tech editor James Huang and Ben Atkins. Scroll down the left hand side of the Tour homepage to see these and other Tour related features.
