TOUR DE FRANCE
Sport 10pm, SBS1
Even the most dedicated bike path haters were won over last year when a never-say-die Cadel Evans became the first Australian to win the Tour de France. It took Evans seven attempts to take his first victory, and he’s back this year for all 21 stages. SBS again has all the live action of a race steeped in history – this is the 99th Tour – and will broadcast every gruelling stage live. This year’s Tour includes Australia’s first professional cycling team, GreenEDGE competing for the first time. Live coverage starts in earnest today at 10pm with stage one. With Wimbledon also playing out, and the London Olympics looming, it’s time for sports freaks to get adjusted to those late nights.
