TOUR DE FRANCE

Sport 10pm, SBS1

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - TV Listings - – DS

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.
