Tour de France 2018 Live Streaming and Aussie Free Air TV Guide


Tour de France streaming on free to air

The biggest event in world cycling is Le Tour de France, and the first day of the 105th edition of the historic race kicks off on July 7 and concludes three grueling weeks later on July 29.

The best cyclists in the world will fight it out over 21 stages and more than 3,000 kilometres of French terrain, with the winner able to lay claim to being the best distance cyclist on the planet and you won’t have to miss a minute when watching live on free to air or streaming the Tour de France to a mobile device.

2018 Tour de France Preview

The Tour de France first took place in 1903, and has been raced virtually every year since, with the main exception being a brief hiatus during WWII. This will be the 105th version of the event, with many of the most famous names in cycling history taking out multiple titles. These include the likes of Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, and of course, more recently, Chris Froome. Froome has had a virtual monopoly on the event in recent years, winning four of the past five events. The sole exception came in 2014 when he crashed during the fifth stage and was forced to pull out of the event.

This year, he will once again head in as a strong favourite. At one point it appeared he wouldn’t be afforded the opportunity to defend his title as the Union Cycliste International investigated doping allegations against him, but just days out from the start of the event they were dropped, leaving him free to challenge for a fifth Tour victory. Australian Richie Porte has been a staple of recent Tour de France events, and this year might be his best chance yet to claim a title; he will start as the second favourite. Others expected to challenge include Colombian Nairo Quintana and Spaniard Mikel Linda, the latter of whom is also tipped to rival Warren Barguil for title of King of the Mountain.

Watch or Stream The Tour de France Live

Once again SBS will be the Tour de France free to air TV provider and the best place to catch all the action from France.
