Tour de France 2018 schedule
The 21 stages of Le Tour de France 2018 begin at Fontenay-le-Comte. Thousands of miles later, the winner will arrive at Paris Champs-Élysées.
Each stage usually begins around 2pm CET (French time) and lasts around 3-4 hours.
When are the 2018 Tour de France dates?
Le Tour 2018 is happening July 7th to July 29th.
The route of Le Tour de France changes a little every year, and the 2017 race is no different. Whereas last year’s event took cyclists into Dusseldorf in Germany, Belgium, and Luxembourg, this year’s edition includes a few challenging stages in the Alps, including the scenic L’Alep d’Huez.
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’re able to watch it with a VPN.
Who will win 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’d be our pick for another win in 2018.
Then again, Romain Bardet remains one of the best contenders around. Can Bardet or someone else beat Froome?
