Win Procycling Top Trumps

    Riders head along the Rhône Valley into the face of the prevailing wind. Usually we’d call a bunch sprint in these conditions as riders shelter in the peloton. But you saw the chaos Sagan and Froome caused on the windy last 10km into Montpelier earlier in the tour. Will the Ettix-Quickstep train finally be rewarded with a

    Win an OTE Starter Pack

      Today’s time trial is a technical test of climbing, descending and bike handling skills. Riders must negotiate the six kilometre climb up La Roche Colombe, then 18 kilometres of undulating parcours, a rapid descend, tight bends, changes of direction and a final five-kilometre climb to the finish. Chris Froome has shown he’s a Jack-of-all-trades at

        Win a Castelli Viva Donna Skully

          Today is the day you’ll watch longingly, wishing you were there on the mountain side of Mont Ventoux. That’s right, Mont Ventoux makes today one of the key stages in the competition for the yellow jersey. It will build slowly into an almighty crescendo of attacks as the GC riders fight for this momentous win. WIN: Enter

          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.

                  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
