When is Le Tour? 2018 Tour de France dates
Le Tour 2018 is happening July 7th to July 29th.
With 21 challenging stages, including two timed individual trials, only the best will emerge victorious in the latest edition of Le Tour.
It’s going to be an incredible Tour — so make sure you don’t miss a minute of the action!
Who’s winning the yellow jersey?
For the past couple of years, Le Tour has been dominated by the Brits of Team Sky. Chris Froome is still going strong, so he’s ExpressVPN’s pick to win in 2018.
With one week of action left, Geraint Thomas is looking strong while Team Sky will be without the disqualified Gianni Moscon. Can Geraint Thomas or someone else beat Froome? Can Froome win his fifth Le Tour?
