Win a PRO storage bottle

    Today the riders don’t have the mountains to contend with but the strong wind that often prevails in this region. The GC riders will have to concentrate to stick in the correct side of the bunch as it capitulates and their teams will be working to shelter them. Will the whole of the Ettix Quickstep train be

    Win a Prologue cycling cap

      An early attack up the Envalira and then a lone descent, free from the constraints of the peloton, could give a committed rider a winning lead. However, they’ll have to be committed. What precedes the finish line is a nasty 6km steep climb. WIN: Enter our competition to guess who will win today’s stage. The winner

      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.

        Win a sports massage

          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

                  Win coffee and cake in the Prologue cafe

                    It’s a tough day at the office this Monday morning for the Tour riders. Today’s stage is 222km long as the race heads south to the Pyrenees. Whoever picked the short straw to go with the break – that will inevitably form – will have a long day ahead of them. It’s likely their efforts
