Saturday, SBS, 8.30pm
The world’s most famous cycling race returns for a 103rd event this year. For some, the race is a chance to see some of the world’s best athletes push themselves to the limit, for others it’s an opportunity to see some of the most beautiful parts of France. Le Tour kicks off tonight from the magnificent Mont Saint Michel in Normandy on the west coast for a lazy 188km ride to Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. This is the 26th year SBS has broadcast the race and Tour regulars Mike Tomalaris, Robbie McEwan (above), Dave McKenzie and Henk Vogels are along for the ride with commentary from Matthew Keenan, Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen.
