How to follow the race?
Those who subscribe to Eurosport (via the Discovery+ Sport and Entertainment pass) or GCN+ are in luck, both will be broadcast daily, as will ITV4 and Welsh terrestrial channel S4C. In Wales S4C is available on Sky 104, Freeview 4, Virgin TV 166 and Freesat 104, while in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland it can be found on Sky 134, Freesat 120 and Virgin TV 166 as well as on iPlayer. Live shows and featured programs will air at different times each day. Alternatively, if you’re stuck at work or don’t have a Eurosport subscription if you have a sports package like Sky and BT or GCN+ – or can’t access S4C – then you can follow the action, as and as it unfolds, right here with Telegraph Sport. Almost every stage will be blogged live by our team – details to follow – while details of the selected race and standings in the main leaderboards will also be posted.
Which teams will run the Tour de France?
As with all WorldTour races, every top-flight team in professional cycling receives an invitation and in the case of the Tour de France, all are entered to participate in the grand tour.
Additionally, Alpecin-Fenix and Arkéa-Samsic qualified as the top-ranked ProTeams from 2021, while race organizers ASO granted wild card spots to French teams B&B Hotels-KTM and TotalEnergies.
