Ten Sports to bring live action from Tour de France commencing on July 2

Ten Sports will telecast live action from Tour de France, which commences from July 2. The 93rd Tour de France will commence from July 2, from Strasborg in neighbouring Germany and will be made up of a prologue and 20 stages, covering a total distance of 3,600 km. The Tour will finish at Champs-Elysees in Paris on July 23. The cyclists will have only two days of rest in between on July 10 and 17.

This year’s Tour de France has a special significance as it will be the first time after seven years that a new rider will have the honour of wearing the yellow jersey. After an emotional farewell last year, the legendary American cyclist Lance Armstrong will hand over the crown to a new rider following his retirement.

The sporting event, which boasts of having 20 stages, is split into nine flat stages, four medium mountain stages, five mountain stages and two individual time-trial stages. The whole action will be captured by Ten Sports except for the first three stages of the Tour that clash with the live coverage of India in the West Indies.

The remaining 17 stages will be live on Ten Sports, with the coverage starting at 6:00 pm from July 5 onwards. Complete coverage of the first three stages will be telecast at 3:30 am and 11:30 am the following day.

Among the favourites to follow in the footsteps of Lance Armstrong are the 32-year-old German Jan Ullrich of Team T-Mobile, who won the race in 1997, Italian Ivan Basso of Team CSC and Alejandro Valverde of Spain.
