Win a pair of Castelli arm warmers

    We’ve all gazed at the screen in awe of Bardet and Sagan’s descending skills. Today’s stage could be in the bag for a skilful rider who can handle the technical descents and unfamiliar parcour that takes riders into Spain. It’s also a day for the GC riders to keep out of trouble and stay upright.

      Today’s stage is riddled with tough climbs including the Col du Tourmalet which is 19 km long at 7.4%. Before the riders hit the finish line they also have the Hourquette d’Ancizan, Col de Val Louron-Azet and the Col de Peyresourde to contend with. Although this looks like a no-brainer – a stage for the

      Win a box of Clif Shot Bloks

        Here the Tour gets really exciting! After a warm up in the valley, the road gets undulating. At any point in these rolling hills a break could form. But if the break doesn’t pull out a substantial lead they’ll no doubt be reeled in up the final climb, Col d’Aspin which is 12km long at

          Win Castelli leg warmers and a water bottle

            Will it be Cav’s day today? As you can guess, it’s a flat stage. In previous editions of the Tour de France Cavendish hasn’t come to fore until around stage five. Last year his win was on stage seven. Will he be warmed up enough to see off Kittel and Greipel? WIN: Enter our competition to guess

            Win a stage one service in the Prologue Workshop

              We’re in the hills! Not the mountains of the Pyrenees or the Alps but the Massif Central. Racing on these climbs won’t be as explosive as the mountain passes but with three climbs condensed into the final 35km featuring an 8 per cent gradient, it’s going to be an interesting stage finale. Finishing on a

                  Whichever sprinter is clad in yellow today, after yesterday’s flat circuit, mustn’t get too fond of the leader’s jersey. Today’s stage features climbs including a 14 per cent ramp followed by a long six per cent uphill slog to the top of the Cote de la Glacerie where the race finishes. This is one for
