This is where it’s at! Bicycle enthusiasts will be going crazy for ‘La Grand Boucle,’ better known as the Tour de France when it begins on July 2. 198 riders will roll out from Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy in what is the ultimate test in strength and endurance. Will British hero Chris Froome, 31, regain his title. Or will Nairo Quintana, 26, steal a march on the favorite? Click down for the live stream to find out!
The race itself will last an incredible 3 weeks, with plenty of twists and turns along the way as the riders go through the most scenic parts of France. The peloton will eventually arrive at the Champs-Elysées in Paris on July 24 at 1pm EST, but how many of the 198 will be left?
The USA boasts three teams in the 103rd edition of the race, including BMC Racing Team, Cannondale Pro Cycling Team and Trek — Segafredo. They may not boast any of the favorites, but they sure will give it their best shot!
It’ll be a bittersweet moment for Peter Stetina, 28, who is racing against all the odds after a life-threatening crash. Last April he smashed into a pole fracturing his tibia, kneecap and four ribs. Ouch!
We love watching the Tour de France because it really does separate the men from the boys. It’s a race, not a sprint so may the best man win!
