official watch of tour de france

While most of us in the States are breaking in our flip-flops, stocking the fridge with hot dogs, and belly-flopping our way down a backyard Slip ’N Slide, the world’s 180 best cyclists have hit the roads in France to traverse more than 2,000 miles (3,000 kilometers) of brutal terrain. And yes, some of them are wearing watches. In fact, Le Tour is loaded with watch- and time-related drama. Consider this your backyard-barbecue conversation guide to the Tour de France, from a horological perspective.

But first, a quick explainer on the Tour.

The first Tour de France was in 1903. It is the oldest of the grand tours in Europe, including the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana; it’s roughly three weeks long, ridden in 21 stages, and includes a couple of rest days. Bicycle races follow a circuit, not unlike horse racing, that the same athletes compete in, and though no one has won all three in the same year – the Triple Crown – they have held the titles all at once, and you’ll hear the name Eddy “The Cannibal” Merckx thrown around as one of them. (He is not racing in this year’s Tour. He is 76 years old.)

Anyway, like pretty much all racing events, this one is about time, which in the Tour is kept in a complicated math having to do with stages, team wins, and rest days. Everyone takes a break and does not actually ride the 2,000 miles straight through from start to the Champs-Elysées in Paris. If you want to follow this year’s winners so far, here’s a nice guide. Despite the rest days, the massage tents, support vans, crashes and pileups, and parades and throngs of fans and all the other stuff that makes it seem like no one is really trying to get to Paris before anyone else, time is absolutely of the essence.

Over the years, Tour riders who were once sleeping under the stars, eating at roadside cafes (maybe getting a little too drunk on wine ), and required to fix their own bikes, have become aerodynamic machines of little more than lycra and sinew, reliant on a vast network of time-keepers, coaches, and support. All of which is to say that any cyclist wearing a hefty timepiece while riding in this race is making a statement. It happens that two of this year’s key players are those kind of statement-makers.

While we can’t possibly check the wrists of all 180-plus starting cyclists, we can tell you about a few heavy-hitters. (Note that these are watches worn while racing, as opposed to those spotted on the wrists of cyclists while living their civilian lives.)

Mark Cavendish : One of the bigger watch stories out there is that Cavendish – who has won more stages in the Tour de France than anyone except Merckx – loves Richard Mille watches. As the story goes, in 2016 Cavendish met Mille and he cried with joy. Mille removed his own watch from his own wrist – the RM-011 Felipe Massa 10th Anniversary Limited Edition, worth north of $250k – and strapped it on Cavendish’s. Here’s a cute pic of the rider in his finery.

Julian Alaphilippe : Another Richard Mille fan, Alaphilippe, current world champion and fan favorite, wears an RM 67-02 that costs about $120k . What does it do, you ask? Tells time! Writes Iaian Treloar for CyclingTips : “Despite a spec list including a white gold rotor, titanium cogs, and ‘Calibre CRMA7 skeletonizsd automatic-winding movement,’ it’s just a very fancy analog watch.”

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Mark Cavendish (@markcavendish)

Probably our favorite watch-and-Tour lore is this: Back in the 1980s, before aerodynamics were the cyclist’s obsession, frames were steel and helmets weren’t required, legendary American champ Greg LeMond (yes, the maker of the LeMond bicycle), began racing in cool watches and pioneering speed-reducing tactics. Now, LeMond was known for being a bit of a bad boy then, supposedly eating ice cream and drinking sodas instead of following a strict salad diet meant to keep him as thin as his bike frame, and (shock!) he brought his wife, Kathy, to watch him race.

The bad boy in action.

After winning the 1986 Tour – and beating five-time winner, Bernard Hinault – to become the first American ever to wear the winning Maillot Jaune jersey, LeMond was accidentally shot while hunting during the off-season. Recovery was slow. After a rough start to 1989, Lemond returned to his winning ways with one of (if not the most famous) Tour victories in history (cue a clip of the emotional finish here , where LeMond wears some kind of Casio). Then he did it again in 1990 , and we have to assume that the choice to race wearing a gold and steel Cartier Santos ref. 119901 was part of his famous rebellious streak.

And just last year, our current reigning champ Tadej Pogačar won the Tour wearing a Breitling Endurance Pro . Pogačar, at just 21 years old, was the youngest to win the Tour de France in over a century and is again leading the pack this year. He’s also at the center of a teensy sponsorship snafu.

So glad you asked. Last year, Richard Mille sponsored team Bahrain-McLaren, whose members included Mille fan Mark Cavendish. But then in a move that lifted not a few eyebrows, Richard Mille signed a four-year deal with team UAE Team Emirates, starting in 2021:

As part of the deal, UAE Team Emirates riders will carry Richard Mille branding on their bikes and kits throughout the next four campaigns, the cyclists will also have the chance to sport the Richard Mille RM 67-02 watch. An ergonomic model and a technical tour de force, weighing just 32 grams, thanks to its use of TPT® composite materials and grade 5 titanium. It also features a special strap, which is entirely seamless, non-slip and highly elastic, so that it follows the contours of every individual wearer’s wrist morphology.

Tadej Pogacar

All well and good unless you are the UAE Team’s super-contender in this year’s Tour, Pogačar, and happened to be a brand ambassador for Breitling. Since the sponsorship announcement, Pogačar has in fact won two Breitling Endurance Pros during the UAE Tour , when the brand gave them out to stage winners . Awkward! And though just last year he won the tour wearing his Breitling, he’s been in and out of his team-issue RM, as far as we can tell.

(Side note: Breitling has a historic link to cyclists as far back as legends Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali.)

Meanwhile, Cavendish is no longer on team Bahrain. After dealing with health issues and threatening to retire, he took over for an injured rider on team Deceuninck–Quick-Step (home to fellow Mille lover, Alaphilippe) and has since powered through this year’s Tour.

Actually, the vast majority earn a modest salary that can range from $20,000 to a quite decent $200,000, and once they’ve reached a certain level the salaries jump to the millions. Cavendish is in the reported 3-mil category. You can buy a few Milles with that many mils.

The big news in this year’s tour is Pogačar – the wunderkind racer – doing what everyone expected and winning, and Cavendish’s unlikely comeback and advance on the Merckx record of stage wins (about which he’s sick of talking ). We’ve got some noncyclist dramas, like the truck and “official sausage supplier” of the Tour de France getting stuck in a mountain pass; and a fan who held up a sign and caused a massive pileup ( and landed in jail ).

A checkered sausage truck

The infamous sausage truck.

However, it’s one unlikely story that in my opinion is the best of all, and that’s Lachlan Morton’s “Alt Tour.” Morton is riding the length of the Tour solo in an attempt to beat the entire peloton (aka the cluster of racers). That means no rest days and no proper beds or meals; Morton is doing the back-to-basics version of the Tour (though I can’t see him rebuilding a frame, but what do I know), sleeping al fresco, and schlepping his own gear. He’s stopping at restaurants and (swoon!) carrying baguettes in his kit. This kind of thing has never been done before. By riding for team EF Pro Cycling (backed by HODINKEE’s pals at Rapha ) and raising money for World Bicycle Relief, Morton is changing the narrative of time on this year’s Tour.

So far, he’s well ahead of the pack, and on course to ride over a thousand miles more than those on the official Tour. It is as someone on Twitter put it, one of the cooler things a pro cyclist has done in awhile. Also maybe “the definition of mental,” as someone else put it. But is he wearing a watch? you ask. Well, it’s not on his packing list , and it looks like what’s on his wrist is a biometrics tracker , so my bet is he’s going by the stars and the angle of the sun. Probably for the best, considering how much longer those extra miles must feel, dipping through mountain passes, all alone in the saddle.

What channel is the Tour de France on?

You can watch the Tour de France on NBC , USA Network, and Peacock . You’ll get the most live coverage from Peacock, which streams every stage and the daily Tour de France Pre-Race Show . USA Network shows a mix of live and encore coverage, while NBC carries select portions of the race—primarily an encore of the final stage in Paris.

Pro tip: To heighten your Tour de France viewing experience, download the official Tour de France mobile app on your Android or iOS device. The app comes with course maps, real-time stats, and live commentary.

2023 Tour de France schedule

This year’s Tour de France begins on July 1 in Spain before crossing into France on the third day. As usual, the 21-day route features a solid mix of flat to mountainous terrain. Two rest days break up the action before racers make their way to the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris on July 23.

Data effective as of post date. Race times include Peacock’s live Tour de France Pre-Race Show coverage.

2023 Tour de France Femmes schedule

Just as the men’s tour wraps up in Paris, the Tour de France Femmes takes off from Clermont-Ferrand. This is the second edition of the women’s race and features an eight-day route ending with an individual time trial in Pau.

Data effective as of post date.

Best TV plans for watching the Tour de France

A Peacock subscription is the best way to watch the Tour de France. Starting at $4.99 a month, the streaming service provides live and on-demand access to every stage of the men’s and women’s races. You’ll also get daily pre- and post-race studio coverage during the men’s competition, plus race highlights and rider interviews.

If you’re only interested in the Tour de France, you can cancel your subscription after the final stage. Otherwise, Peacock’s cycling coverage doesn’t stop there. The service also hosts the Liège–Bastogne–Liège, Critérium du Dauphiné, Vuelta a España, and Paris Tours. It’s also home to the Summer Olympics , which features road race and track cycling events every four years.

Which TV providers carry the Tour de France

Besides Peacock, most TV services carry Tour de France coverage via NBC and USA Network. Our table below illustrates which popular providers offer the two channels.

How to watch the Tour de France for free

*CableTV.com utilizes paid Amazon links. Amazon.com Price; $47.99 (as of 5/3/23 11:30 a.m. CT). Read full disclaimer .

The most convenient way to watch the Tour de France for free is by using an over-the-air (OTA) antenna to pick up your local NBC station. Unfortunately, NBC doesn’t show a lot of race coverage—mostly encore presentations of early and late stages. But it never hurts having an antenna in your TV setup.

If you don’t have an antenna, most cost between $20.00 and $60.00. We recommend the Mohu Leaf 50 for its 60-mile range and slim design. But you’ll want to verify the distance of your nearest NBC station by entering your zip code into the Federal Communications Commission’s Reception Map Tool . That’ll help determine if you need a more robust antenna, which we feature on our Best OTA Antennas page.

Pro tip: To make up for every stage NBC doesn’t air, you can stream free race recaps on NBC Sports’ YouTube channel .

The 110th Tour de France will stream on Peacock and air on NBC and USA Network throughout July 2023. Peacock offers the best way to watch Le Tour because it streams every stage from beginning to end. It also carries the entire women’s race, which begins the same day as the men’s competition ends.

If you’re a cycling fan without access to fast and reliable internet, most cable and satellite TV services have NBC and USA Network. Those channels don’t show as much Tour de France coverage as Peacock, but you’ll still see the most vital moments of the race.

How to watch the Tour de France FAQ

Can you watch the tour de france on nbc.

Yes, some Tour de France coverage airs on NBC. But you’ll want a Peacock Premium subscription to watch every stage from start to finish.

How can I watch today’s Tour de France stage?

If today’s date is between July 1 and July 23, you can watch the current Tour de France stage live and on demand via Peacock . Check out our complete Tour de France 2023 schedule for race start times and channel listings.

Is every cycling Grand Tour race on NBC?

No, not every race in the Grand Tour of Cycling airs on NBC. While NBC Sports channels and platforms televise the Tour de France and Vuelta a España, the Giro d’Italia streams on Max’s  B/R Sports Add-On .

What cycling events are on Peacock?

Popular cycling events featured on Peacock include the Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and Summer Olympics . Other major UCI World Tour races like the Giro d’Italia, Milan–San Remo, and Tour of Flanders stream on services like FloBikes and Max’s B/R Sports Add-On .

Additional encores of each stage air on USA at 2 a.m. ET most days. All NBC and USA Network coverage also streams on NBCSports.com/live and the NBC Sports app. Complete broadcast information is here .

Peacock will also air daily live pre-race shows setting up each stage.

The Tour began July 1 with the Grand Départ in Spain before crossing into France on the third stage.

The Tour covers France’s five biggest mountain ranges, including eight mountain stages and four summit finishes.

The Tour will not have a time trial on the penultimate day as it did the last three years. Instead, the 20th stage, usually the last competitive stage for the yellow jersey, includes five significant climbs.

This is the first Tour since 2009 to include the last three men to win a Tour. That’s Dane Jonas Vingegaard, who went from a fish-packing facility worker years ago to the top of pro cycling in 2022; Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, who in 2020 became at 21 the second-youngest winner in race history, then repeated in 2021, and Colombian Egan Bernal, who in 2019 became the first South American to win the Tour.

Mark Cavendish, a 38-year-old Brit aiming to break his tie for the career Tour de France stage wins record of 34, crashed out in the eighth stage of his final Tour.

Read on and we'll show you how to watch Tour de France from anywhere with a VPN , and potentially for FREE .

It's the biggest race of them all, but these days, the Tour de France means one thing: Tadej Pogačar vs Jonas Vingegaard. Between them the duo have won the last three editions of the race, with Vingegaard taking the 2022 race for Team Jumbo–Visma and Pogačar winning in 2020 and 2021.

In the most recent action, Vingegaard left Pogačar in the dust, gaining six minutes on his rival in the final climb. Pogačar called it "one of the worst days of my life on the bike."

Vingegaard is still in the lead, and fended off some anti-doping questions at the end of Stage 19. Two more stages remain, and Pogačar is still in second, with Adam Yates is in third.

Here's how to watch Tour de France live streams online, from anywhere.

If you live in the U.K., Australia, France, Italy, Spain or Belgium, then you can look forward to a FREE Tour de France live stream in 2023.

That's because the free-to-air ITV4 and its ITVX streaming service in the U.K., SBS and SBS on Demand streaming service in Australia, France.TV in France, Rai Play in Italy, Teledeporte in Spain, and RTBF in Belgium all have rights to the action. 

But what if you're based in one of those countries but aren't at home to catch that free Tour de France coverage? Maybe you're on holiday and don't want to spend money on pay TV in another country, when you'd usually be able to watch for free at home?

Don't worry — you can watch it via a VPN instead. We'll show you how to do that below.

It's only natural that you might want to watch a Tour de France live stream from your home country, but what if you're not there when the race is on?

Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

For instance, a Brit who's currently in the U.S. could watch Tour de France live streams on ITVX , even though they're not in the U.K.

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN . It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Safety, speed and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice . As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a British service, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to ITVX or another website and watch Tour de France.

How to watch Tour de France live streams in the US

If you've cut the cord and don't have cable, you can watch Tour de France via several live TV services, including NBC's own Peacock , plus Sling TV and Fubo .

Of these options, we recommend Peacock: It costs just $4.99/month with ads, or $9.99 without, and includes lots more great content in addition to Tour de France live streams.

If you go the Sling TV route, you'll want Sling Blue, which is $45 per month and comes with more than 40 channels, including NBC (in select regions) and USA Network. And right now, Sling is offering $25 off your first month . 

Fubo, meanwhile, costs $75 per month for 161 channels, including NBC and USA network. Sports fans will find a number of niche sports channels among its lineup.

How to watch the Tour de France 2023: schedule, standings and what you need to know

Cycling's biggest race is underway.

Tour de France 2023 stage 7

  • Watch in the US
  • Watch in the UK
  • Watch from anywhere

The Tour de France 2023 continues onto the second half of its stages, with the top racers passing the 50-hour timing mark, and this guide will help you figure out how to watch the cycling live.

The 110th iteration of the race once again sees the world's best cyclists, including defending champion Jonas Vingegaard, compete in a 24-day, 21-stage race, which this year goes from Bilbao, Spain, to Paris.

In addition to how to watch, we've got other information to help you get ready for the Tour de France, including the route, teams and more. You can also get some never-before-seen access to the Tour de France (or at least last year's) with Tour de France: Unchained on Netflix.

So, without further ado, here's everything you need to know about how to watch the Tour de France 2023.

How to watch the Tour de France 2023 in the US

NBCUniversal has the broadcast and streaming rights to the Tour de France 2023 in the US. Peacock is set to stream every stage of the race live from its start, while specific details on traditional TV coverage for the Tour de France are going to be announced closer to the race, though last year NBC and USA Network split live coverage. 

Presuming that stays the case, to watch the NBC and USA coverage of the Tour de France, US viewers must be signed up to a pay-TV cable subscription service that carries NBC and USA (most do) or be a subscriber to a live TV streaming service with the networks, like FuboTV , Hulu with Live TV , Sling TV and YouTube TV . Households that utilize a TV antenna can pick up the NBC broadcasts of the race.

If you want to watch the entire Tour de France live though, you’ll need to sign up for Peacock, specifically its Peacock Premium subscription.

Here is the schedule and where to watch the Tour de France stages for July 21-23 in the US:

Saturday, July 22

  • Pre-Race Show, 7 am ET/4 am PT, Peacock
  • Stage 20, 7:30 am ET/4:30 am PT, Peacock

Sunday, July 23

  • Pre-Race Show, 10 am ET/7 am PT, Peacock
  • Stage 21, 10:10 am ET/7:10 am PT, Peacock

How to watch the Tour de France 2023 in the UK

There are going to be many options to watch the Tour de France in the UK, with ITV4, Eurosport, GCN+ and S4C set to cover the event.

ITV4 is free-to-air for all UK TV households and is providing live daily coverage and highlights of each stage.  S4C is also free, and it'll provide coverage in the Welsh language.

Eurosport channels 1 and 2 (channels 410 and 411 on Sky TV ) are also going to air the race, with streaming options available on Discovery Plus . Coverage is also going to be available on GCN Plus and S4C in Wales.

How to watch the Tour de France 2023 from anywhere

If you're going to be away from your normal TV setup but still want to watch the Tour de France, you might run into some problems. Thankfully, you can solve this exact issue with a Virtual Private Network (VPN). 

A VPN lets you change your IP address to that of the area of what you want to watch, meaning you can tune in to your major sporting events like the French Open or other content even if you're not there. Our favorite is ExpressVPN , which is the No. 1-rated VPN in the world right now according to our sister site, TechRadar.

ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN is one of the simplest and most affordable ways to watch what you want from anywhere you want to watch it.

Tour de France 2023 route

Here is the official route map for the Tour de France 2023:

Tour de France 2023 cyclists

As we mentioned in the intro, Jonas Vingegaard is the defending Tour de France champion and is returning to the race this year to make it two in a row. He is widely viewed as one of the favorites, but who is best situated to challenge him?

According to What to Watch sister site CyclingNews , Vingegaard may not even be the favorite. They list Tadej Pogacar as their top pick to win the race. It certainly is a rivlary to watch between the two, as Vingegaard's win in 2022 prevented Pogacar from winning the race for the third straight year.

Other likely contenders include Mikel Landa, David Gaudu, Enric Mas, Richard Carapaz, Romain Bardet, Jai Hindley, Simon Yates and Dani Martinez. 

Check out the official Tour de France website for a full list of this year's cyclists.

How to Watch the Tour de France

Easton Smith

We may earn money when you click our links.

It’s July, which means the Tour de France (or TDF) is kicking into gear. Watching the event live or on-demand is about as easy as coasting downhill on a Cannondale.

The Tour will be broadcast by NBC Sports, which means you can catch it on your local NBC affiliate, the USA Network, or the Peacock streaming service.

We think that Peacock offers the best viewing experience because you can watch live or on-demand on many different devices. The service costs just $5.99 a month (or $11.99 ad-free), and you can sign up and watch right now.

Here’s everything cycling fans need to know about watching the Tour de France and the Tour de France Femmes (which is also broadcast by NBC).

  • Tour de France channels
  • TDF on Peacock
  • TDF on cable and streaming
  • TDF with an HD antenna
  • Tour de France FAQ

What channel has the Tour de France?

Because NBC is the official broadcaster of the Tour de France and the Tour de France Femmes in the United States, the events will be available on NBCUniversal Media channels.

  • NBC: Local NBC affiliates will be streaming select stages of the race. Right now, it seems like the network will only be airing the first and the last stages of the race.
  • USA Network: The USA Network will be airing many stages of the race live, and others it will air late-night reruns.
  • Peacock: You can watch every stage of the race live on Peacock (with a Premium Monthly or Premium Plus plan). You can also stream reruns of stages that you don’t watch live. Peacock will also stream all of the Tour de France Femmes stages live.

All of the coverage will have commentary from NBC Sports anchors Phil Liggett (also known as the "voice of cycling") and Bob Roll.

What is the Tour de France route and schedule?

The best way to look at the Tour de France schedule is in map form! This is the official route with the dates of each stage indicated along the way.

You can see the full schedule for the Tour de France on the event’s website . The Tour de France Femmes schedule can also be found online here .

Our top recommendation: Watch the Tour de France on Peacock

The Peacock streaming app offers by far the easiest and most extensive Tour de France viewing experience. You can catch every stage of the race live, or watch them on-demand after they air.

Subscribers can watch Peacock on their phones, computers, tablets, smart TVs, and other devices. You can also link your subscription with services like Roku .

Peacock plans and prices

Peacock is a very affordable streaming service. 

But to get the Tour de France you’ll need to get a Peacock Premium Monthly or Premium Plus plan.

The biggest benefit of going for the Premium Plus plan is that you can watch everything on the site ad-free, including the Tour de France.

But Peacock has a lot more than just cycling content. It’s the main streaming home for classic shows like Parks and Recreation and The Office . It’s where you can watch modern hits like Yellowstone and Poker Face . It’s also the exclusive streaming home for all Universal Movie releases , including big hits like the Jurassic Park and Harry Potter franchises.

Others ways to watch the Tour de France

You don’t have to subscribe to the Peacock app to watch the Tour de France. You can also get coverage of the cycling event's 21 stages by subscribing to a cable or live TV streaming service that has USA and NBC.

Other services with NBC Sports Tour de France coverage

Most live TV streaming services will get you access to USA Network and a local NBC affiliate. But we think these are the best options out there right now.

Each one of these services has its pros and cons, and all of them have a lot more content to offer than just the Tour de France.

Watch the Tour de France for free

There is one way to watch certain parts of the Tour de France for free. All you need is an indoor HD antenna and a TV.

With an antenna you should be able to pick up your local NBC affiliate. The channel will air at least the first and last stage of the Tour de France live. You won’t have to pay for a subscription or even sign up for anything (a rare thing in our modern world).

How to install an antenna

TV antennas are cheap and relatively easy to install. You can find a good one for under $30 online . Then just follow the instructions to attach the antenna to your TV and mount it near a window.

With a TV antenna you’ll get more than just NBC. You can watch local nightly news, sit-coms like The Simpsons (on Fox) and Abbot Elementary (ABC), and other sporting events, like the Super Bowl.

Recap: What’s the best way to watch the Tour de France?

The Tour de France is being broadcast by three different channels: NBC, USA Network, and Peacock. All three channels will have NBC Sports commentary.

By far the best and easiest way to watch is with the Peacock streaming app , which costs just $6–$12 a month (depending on which plan you go for). It will show every stage of the race live and let you watch on-demand after the race airs.

Hopefully we answered most of your questions in the sections above, but here’s a quick FAQ section to wrap up any loose ends.

Yes. You can watch the Tour de France on NBC or USA Network with a Youtube TV subscription .

No. You cannot watch the Tour de France or the Tour de France Femmes on ESPN or ESPN+ in the United States.

You can watch the Tour de France for $5.99 a month with a Peacock subscription. You can also watch on the USA Network or NBC with a cable or live TV subscription. If you have a TV antenna you can also catch certain stages of the race for free on your local NBC affiliate.

Tour de France 2023: How to Watch a Free Livestream

Your guide to watching the 110th edition of the world's most famous bike race, including all the teams, stages and full schedule.

kevin-lynch-profile-image

Three grueling weeks of calf-destroying climbs and tense sprints await the world's best riders as the 110th Tour de France gets underway this weekend.

Kicking off with the Grand Départ, which takes place this year in Bilbao, Spain, the route makes its way across Basque Country before heading up the Pyrenees, across the Massif Central and eventually concluding on the cheering streets of Paris.

This year's tour is once again being billed as a rematch between defending champion Jonas Vingegaard (on the Jumbo-Visma team) and two-time winner Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) as the great rivals go head-to-head for the third year in a row. 

Pogačar is battling back from a broken wrist sustained two months ago, while last year's Giro d'Italia champion Jai Hindley and Ineos Grenadiers star Egan Bernal will both be looking to wrestle away the iconic yellow jersey. 

Veteran British sprinter Mark Cavendish will be attempting to claim the record for most Tour stage wins, with the Astana Qazaqstan ace currently level with Belgian legend Eddy Merckx on 34.

Below, we'll outline the best  live TV streaming services  to use to watch the the Tour de France live wherever you are in the world.

Tour de France 2023: Where and when is it?

The Tour de France begins with Stage 1 in Bilbao on Saturday, July 1, and ends with its traditional passage along the Champs-Élysées in Paris on Sunday July 23.

How to watch the Tour de France online from anywhere using a VPN

If you find yourself unable to view the Tour locally, you may need a different way to watch the world's greatest cyclists -- that's where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it's also a great idea if you're traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.

With a VPN, you're able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. Most VPNs, like our  Editors' Choice, ExpressVPN , make it really easy to do this.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Australia, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you're streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.

Looking for other options? Be sure to check out some of the other great  VPN deals  taking place right now.

Quick tips for streaming Tour de France 2023 using a VPN 

  • With four variables at play -- your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN -- your experience and success when streaming the Tour de France live may vary.
  • If you don't see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the "search for city or country" option.
  • If you're having trouble getting the game after you've turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs -- like Roku -- don't have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you'll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you're using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network's sports app, you'll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. 
  • And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you're using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend  Brave .

Tour de France 2023 preview: Full schedule and how to watch live

Another thrilling battle at the 2023 Tour de France is in sight as Tadej Pogacer will try to take back the Tour de France crown that he lost to Jonas Vingegaard last year. Here is all you need to about this year’s race which begins on 1 July in Bilbao, Spain.

Jonas Vingegaard on the podium in Paris at the Tour de France 2022

The Tour de France 2023 has all the makings of another road cycling thriller.

Will the world’s most prestigious race be the third act in the epic battle between defending champion Jonas Vingegaard of Denmark and 2021 champion Tadej Pogacar ?

Soon we will have all the answers with the 110 th edition of the French Grand Tour starting on Saturday (1 July) in Bilbao, the largest city in the Basque Country, Spain.

Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) is hoping to be crowned champion again, after he won last year’s race as just the second Dane in history ahead of Slovenia’s two-time Tour de France winner, Tadej Pogacar

It is the 110 th edition of the French Grand Tour that will feature Tokyo 2020 Olympic champion Richard Carapaz , silver medallist Wout van Aert and bronze medallist Pogacar.

La Grande Boucle will cover 3,404 km over the 21 stages, with the final stage taking place at the Champs-Élysées in Paris on 23 July. There are eight flat stages, four hilly stages, one time trial and eight mountain stages. Four of these have summit finishes, including the stage to the mythical Puy de Dôme.

176 riders will be on the start line at the Guggenheim Museum, one of Bilbao’s major tourist attractions, with eight riders for each of the 22 teams.

Below you will find everything you need to know about this year’s Tour de France.

In 2022, we witnessed a breathtaking duel between Vingegaard and Pogacar , and they are coming into this year’s race as the two big favourites.

The 26-year-old Dane has participated in four stage races this season, having won three of them in dominant fashion - O Gran Camiño, Itzulia Basque Country, and most recently the Critérium du Dauphiné.

Pogacar and Vingegaard last faced each other at the Paris-Nice in March, where the 24-year-old Slovenian claimed victory ahead of David Gaudu and Vingegaard .

UAE Tean Emirates captain Pogacar has claimed no less than 14 victories this season including Paris-Nice, Tour of Flanders, Amstel Gold Race and La Flèche Wallonne, before he crashed and broke his wrist at the Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

The two-time Il Lombardia winner made his comeback last week, claiming both the Slovenian national time trial and road race championship.

2022 Giro d’Italia winner Jai Hindley is going to be the leader on a strong BORA - Hansgrohe team. At the Critérium du Dauphiné, 27-year-old Hindley finished fourth behind Adam Yates of the UAE Team Emirates and his compatriot Ben O'Connor of AG2R Citroën Team.

With his win at last year’s Giro, the Australian has shown that he has the endurance needed to compete in a three-week Grand Tour.

22-year-old Mattias Skjelmose (Denmark) stunned the world of cycling by winning the Tour de Suisse earlier this month ahead of the likes of Remco Evenepoel and Juan Ayuso .

He continued his impressive run and was crowned Danish road race champion on Sunday (25 June), after a spectacular solo effort in the final kilometres.

The Trek-Segafredo rider has participated in one Grand Tour previously as he rode the Giro d’Italia last year finishing just 40 th . This year’s Tour de France will be a test of his stamina.

And dont count out Enric Mas. The 28-year-old Spaniard has finished second in the general classification at the Vuelta a España three times and is hoping to make the podium at the Tour.

The Movistar rider came in top six overall in three stage races this season.

Other key riders at the tour de france 2023, green jersey.

Last year's points competition winner Wout van Aert has already announced that the green jersey will not be a target for him as he aims to win stages and prepare for the UCI Cycling World Championships that takes place just two weeks after the finish in Paris.

That leaves Jasper Philipsen of Alpecin-Deceuninck as the favourite to take the crown. The Belgian clinched two stages last season - including the most prestigious sprint finish on the Champs-Élysées - and he has already six race wins this season. His versatile teammate Mathieu van der Poel seems to be in the shape of his life, and if the Paris-Roubaix winner gets the freedom to chase the green jersey, watch out for the Dutchman.

The biggest threat might come from Soudal-Quick Step that always target stage wins with their sprinter. Fabio Jakobsen will be their trusted sprinter, like last year. The Dutchman is supported by a strong sprint cast with the most experienced lead-out man in the peloton, Michael Mørkøv, to set him up. 

Sprinter’s teams like Team Jayco Alula with Dylan Groenewegen and Lotto Dstny with Caleb Ewan will also chase stage wins and are contenders for the green jersey.

Denmark’s Mads Pedersen and Biniam Girmay of Eritrea are not only great sprinters but also good climbers. That ability can secure points for the green jersey classification on the more hilly stages. Pedersen took his first Tour de France stage win in last year’s edition and claimed the green jersey in the Vuelta a España, but like van Aert he has announced his focus is to arrive in top shape at the UCI Cycling World Championships in Glasgow.

Polka dot jersey

In the last three editions of the Tour de France, the winner of the king of the mountains classification has also been the overall winner of the Tour de France. Therefore, Pogacar and Vingegaard are the top contenders this year.

For the French riders it will be a special achievement to be on the podium in Paris wearing the polka dot jersey. Thibaut Pinot , who was king of the mountains classification at the Giro d’Italia in May is keen on challenging the two top guns as is 2019 polka dot jersey winner Romain Bardet .

Tour de france 2023 route and important stages.

The 2023 Tour de France begins with a hilly stage containing some 3,400 metres of climbing. Contenders for the overall win will have to be ready from the start on the hills around Bilbao. The stage suits classics specialist like Mathieu van der Poel , Wout van Aert and Julian Alaphilippe who all want to be the first rider to wear the yellow jersey at this year’s Tour de France.

After another hilly stage in the Basque Country to San Sebastian on stage two, the peloton will cross the French border and resume the race with flat stages on day three and four. 

Stage five will take the peloton on the first mountain stage in the Pyrenees which includes Col du Soudet and Col de Marie Blanque. The following day, the riders will tackle the mythical mountain Col du Tourmalet before finishing the stage on the category 1 climb Cauterets-Cambasque. Week one concludes with an eagerly anticipated summit finish to the volcano Puy de Dôme that returns to the Tour after a 35-year absence.

On stage 13 in week two, the teams face a gruelling finish to Col du Grand Colombier in the Jura mountains. The two following days will also test the riders’ climbing skills with stage 15 featuring a summit finish to Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc in the Alps to end week two.

The final week kicks off with stage 16, the only individual time trial in the race. It is just 22 kilometres long but contains a fair amount of climbing, especially in the second part of the route. After the time trial, the queen stage of the Tour de France with more than 5000 metres of climbing is sure to generate plenty of drama. Colo de la Loze, the highest point of the race at 2304m, is the biggest obstacle on this stage being 28 kilometres long, with an average gradient of six percent.

Two flatter stages follow ahead of a short but mountainous penultimate stage in the Vosges on stage 20. It will be the last chance for the general classification contenders to gain time before the celebrations in Paris.

How to Watch the Tour de France

The world’s greatest cyclists journey across France in the biggest race of the year and Peacock is the only place to see it all.

Cyclists pass the Arc du Triomphe in the Tour de France

It’s time for cycling’s most anticipated event of the year. The Tour de France brings the best professional cyclists in the world together for a three-week cross-country race. The route is different every year, but the destination remains the same: A grand finish on Paris’ Champs-Elysées. No other competition is quite like it. Even if you don’t normally follow professional cycling, you’ll find yourself drawn in, captivated by the 21-day drama on display. If you want to see it all, there’s one place you need to be. 

What Is the Tour de France? 

The Tour de France is a massive bike race that takes cyclists on a three-week journey through France. With the exact route changing every year, this is a unique challenge unlike anything else on the cycling calendar. The race is broken up into stages, with each day covering a certain portion of the route. Each stage has its own winner, and the winner of the entire event is the person who has the fastest time of all 21 stages. Every stage matters. Even winning one, even if the rider doesn’t win the tournament, will boost that rider’s standing significantly. Only the absolute best, most competitive riders make it to the Tour de France, so tensions are high for the entire three-week race. 

This year’s event will take 176 riders through 3,404 km of road, hill, and mountain terrain. Multiple stages will force cyclists to climb for more than an hour straight. It’s a tough route that encourages athletes to take risks to get ahead. This year’s edition of the Tour de France is sure to be the most memorable yet.

Stage 1: NBC and Peacock 

Stage 2: Exclusively on Peacock 

Stages 3-7: USA and Peacock 

Stages 8-21: Exclusively on Peacock 

Can I Watch a Stage Later if I Can’t Catch it Live?

Every replay will be available after the conclusion of each stage so you never have to miss a moment. The Tour de France is the most dramatic race on the calendar, so Peacock is making sure you get to see it all. 

Which Cyclists Should I Look Out For? 

Defending champion Jonas Vingegaard is definitely one to watch. He’s an absolute phenom and there’s absolutely a possibility of him repeating this year. He’s not the only favorite though. Tadej Pogacar, who won the Tour in 2020 and 2021, will likely fight for the top spot the whole way through. The battle between these two is one of the most-anticipated elements of this year’s race. 

Australian cyclists Ben O’Connor and Jai Hindley could also make some noise, as could France’s David Gaudu and Ecuador’s Richard Carapaz. They could even pose a threat to the top two favorites if things break their way. Cycling is a fickle and unpredictable sport, after all. There are also a few American cyclists worth paying attention to, particularly Matteo Jorgenson and Neilson Powless. Even if they don’t win the whole thing, or even podium, they have a definite shot at securing some stage wins. That alone is a career highlight for pro cyclists. 

There is no race quite like the Tour de France. It’s long, dramatic, and a true test of endurance. Emotions run high for the entire three weeks, making for the most thrilling race of the year. Get Peacock now to see it all.

The Tour de France has grown over the years to be known as the greatest race on Earth. The sheer endurance needed to ride an average of 100km for a duration of three weeks in some of the most physically challenging terrain is testimony to the riders passion, drive and commitment to the sport.

For the French, the Tour is a national celebration and it is a great honour for ones town or city to be chosen as a host venue. Every year hundreds of thousands of spectators line the streets of every village, hamlet and roadside to be part of  the colour, smell, noise and atmosphere.

The Tour is also a great tourist attraction with fans coming from all over the world. There is such a build up to the race coming through and its important to get to where you want to see it at least two hours before as the gendarmes close the roads in preparation.

First through is the publicity caravan made up of many of France's major brands in dedicated vehicles advertising their wares and giving away free gifts. It's great fun trying to grab the freebie chocolates, key rights, and race caps from the moving vehicles but be careful not to get caught in the stampede. It's quite amazing what people will do to get a free gift! The caravan lasts about 45 minutes and is entertaining for the spectators who may have waited many hours to catch a glimpse of the riders. In fact, one survey found that 39% of spectators come to see the publicity parade rather than the actual riders.

On the mountains

The mountain stages in the Pyrenées and the Alps are always a magnificent spectacle where thousands of people flock and create a great atmosphere. These stages are always popular as often you can see the pre-race cavalcade followed by the riders. The incline of the mountain naturally slows down the passing cavalcade and race so that its spectacle is slowly absorbed by the crowd.

It's also worth noting when the rest days are, as these give you a chance before or after a stage to see more of the surrounding area or to travel on to another stage.

Finding Tour de France accommodation

The sheer number of people from around  the world that follow the Tour means the minute the Tour route is announced there is a rush to book accommodation , cycling holidays following the tour , car hire etc, so make sure you make arrangements as early as possible.

Zoom into the map below to find accommodation on your section of the route. It's a work in progress and we're adding to it all the time (suggestions welcome via [email protected] ).

You can also browse bike-friendly accommodation across all of France via our Where to Stay section .

If you're planning on camping out on top of the more popular mountains, try to arrive a good two days prior to the race coming through to get a prime parking and/or camping space.

Road closures

Once you have decided where you would like to see the Tour, check prior to arriving – or with the local tourist office as soon as you arrive – to see which roads are going to be closed (and when). You also need to find out what time the stage will be approximately coming through at the place you  hope to see it.  If you are following a particular stage on bike, it may be advisable to ride the route the day before to familiarise yourself with how long it will actually take so you don’t miss the race going through. I try and log Tour de France road closure information here as it comes to hand each year.

What to take with you

*** Again, we strongly advise getting a copy of the Official Tour de France Race Guide to help your planning. It has all stage times and maps in one place. ***

It's advisable to bring as much water as possible with you as it is the summer and will generally be hot and sunny, particularly the further south you go. If you are on bike or even following the race in a car, it might be wise to take a small packed lunch with you as the French are very strict on when they serve food – generally 12-2pm and it may be difficult to find anything outside those hours, particularly if you are in a rural village. You should also bring sun cream, hat, camera, video camera , mobile phone and if you  are going by bike some form of identification, even if its a hand written note of your name and contact telephone number in case of accident.

Bike hire for the Tour de France

It can be hard to find a high-spec road bike to ride Tour stages before or after the peloton. Bike hire, like accommodation, tends to get booked up months in advance, particularly on popular mountain stages. Away from the mountains, standard road bike or hybrid hire is easier to find, but high quality carbon fibre bikes can still be difficult to find outside well-known road cycling areas. For bike rental options across France, see our bike hire pages . It is also worth considering bicycle hire services that deliver to your door . If you are taking an organised cycling holiday in France to tie in with the Tour de France, your tour company should be able to arrange bike hire for you.

If you're going to a stage by bike and need to park it up by the side of road either keep a very close eye on your bike or preferably bring a chain to lock it up. The majority of spectators are there to see the race but there’s always the opportunistic thief, so just have your wits about you.

If you're cycling to one of the mountain stages, you will be climbing the mountain with thousands of others which is a great experience as everyone is cheering everyone else on. However, the descent after the race can be nerve wracking as you are again surrounded by thousands of cyclists of all abilities and also pedestrians, cars and other vehicles, so again, be careful and be sensible.

Many people plan their whole year around following the tour and make a holiday out of it taking in the atmosphere in the lead up to the stage coming through, so just be organised. Also keep an eye on the weather forecast  to ensure you're kitted out for rain or sunshine.

When will it be released?

How much did it cost, will there be a second season, have netflix produced tour de france documentaries before.

Tom Davidson

This June, streaming platform Netflix will release a first-of-its-kind documentary series about the Tour de France . It will come out on 8 June at 08:00 in the UK. This equates to 03:00 US east coast time, midnight on the US west coast, and 17:00 in Sydney, Australia. 

Titled 'Tour de France: Unchained', or 'Tour de France: Au cœur du peloton' ('Inside the peloton') in French, here's everything you need to know about it. 

Tour de France: Unchained is a new Netflix documentary series that tells the story of the 2022 Tour de France. 

The news of its production came in March 2022, with camera crews then embedding within seven teams at the race. Created as part of a joint venture between Quadbox and Box to Box Films, the makers of F1: Drive to Survive, the series offers exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to the highs and lows of the Tour de France. France Télévisions also contributed to the production.

The series consists of eight episodes, each lasting around 40 minutes. Below is a chart of the episode titles, and which teams they are focused on. 

Our very own Adam Becket has already reviewed it , concluding: "It's a thrilling watch for both those who know cycling, and those who are new to the sport. It might prove too general for the committed fan, but there is something for everyone."

"There are flaws, with the absence of Pogačar the biggest, and it appearing surface level at times," he writes. "However, professional cycling is a confusing sport, and  Unchained  does an excellent job of breaking down the barriers to entry to show just how enthralling it is."

It was originally understood that eight teams had given exclusive access to Netflix camera crews for the series. These included: AG2R Citroën, Alpecin-Deceuninck, Bora-Hansgrohe, EF Education-EasyPost, Groupama-FDJ, Ineos Grenadiers, Jumbo-Visma and Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl.

Netflix’s Tour de France: Unchained landing page now says that only seven teams are involved, with Bora Hansgrohe no longer appearing to feature. 

As part of the series, the teams’ managers have undergone sit-down interviews, much like those in the F1: Drive to Survive episodes. These include Groupama-FDJ's Marc Madiot and EF Education-EasyPost's Jonathan Vaughters.

A number of journalists, working across various outlets around the world, have also been interviewed for the series. Among them is Eurosport presenter Orla Chennaoui, who revealed her involvement on her Instagram page.

What do we already know about it?

The producers of the series have so far released three trailers. 

The first was shown at the Mobile Live World Congress in Barcelona, Spain in March 2023 and showed on-bike footage, interviews with team managers and behind-the-scenes action. 

In April 2023, the Tour de France, Netflix and the participating teams, shared a new, one-minute trailer (below), which included the docuseries’s official name, ‘Tour de France: Unchained’, and release date of 8 June. 

A third trailer was released on 2 June, featuring interviews with Wout van Aert, Fabio Jakobsen and Thibaut Pinot. 

Of course, the story of the race, won by Jumbo-Visma’s Jonas Vingegaard, will already be well known to cycling fans.

The series will be available to stream on Netflix on 8 June. This coincides with the Critérium du Dauphiné , the key precursor stage race to the Tour. 

Unchained will be available in 190 territories, and will be released at 08:00 in the UK. This equates to 03:00 US east coast time, midnight on the US west coast, and 17:00 in Sydney, Australia. 

When the series is released, it will be shown here on Netflix's website . 

According to reports, Netflix covered the production costs of €8 million to make the series, paying a total of €1 million to the different parties involved. The participating teams are understood to have been given around €62,000 each.

Yes. Netflix's camera crews will embed once again within the peloton at the 2023 Tour de France for a second season of Unchained . 

It is unknown at this stage which teams will be taking part. 

Tour de France: Unchained is Netflix’s first official docuseries about the French Grand Tour. 

The streaming platform has, however, produced three seasons of a fly-on-the-wall series about the Movistar team, titled ‘The Least Expected Day’, covering the squad’s 2019, 2020 and 2021 seasons. 

Similar docuseries have been made about WorldTour teams Soudal Quick-Step, Jumbo-Visma and SD Worx for Amazon Prime.

Watch the Official Teaser Trailer for the Forthcoming Tour de France Netflix Series

Tour de France: Unchained will hit the streaming service on June 8

  • The new Tour de France Netflix series now has a name: Tour de France: Unchained
  • It will be released officially on June 8
  • A new teaser trailer (watch above!) is available now

The first season will be eight parts and features seven teams—including Jonas Vingegaard ’s Jumbo-Visma team—during the 2022 Tour de France.

The teaser trailer, which comes in at a minute and 10 seconds long, features plenty of race footage, as well as behind the scenes clips. Its release in June will coincide with the Critérium du Dauphiné.

Fans are hoping Unchained can become cycling’s version of Drive to Survive that has followed a number of Formula 1 drivers during its five seasons, dating back to 2018. Unchained was produced by the same team that made Drive to Survive.

After his crash at Liège-Bastogne-Liège on Sunday, Tadej Pogačar’s fitness level for the 2023 version of Tour de France is certainly question. Until then, we’ll get a chance to relive Pogačar’s battle with eventual winner Vingegaard at the 2022 edition. (Pogačar’s UAE team Emirates, however, did not agree to be featured in Unchained).

A season two is apparently in the works!

While you anxiously await the June 8 release, you can get pumped by watching the trailer above. Now if only we had a Tour de France Netflix series for the women .
