Get Pumped For Tour de France 2017

Just a few days left until the best sporting event of the summer: the Tour de France!

The Tour de France, which begins on July 1, consists of 21 day-long stages over a 23-day period and covers around 2,200 miles all over France. There are 23 teams competing this year.


The best part is definitely when the bikers ride round the Arc de Triomphe, but there’s tons of other amazingly scenic routes, as well.

Of course, for the riders, the Tour de France is about more than the views. For three-time winner Chris Froome, from Team Sky, it will be about keeping the victory in his name, even though there’s a lot of competition.

Check out the promo video for the Tour de France to get pumped for this year’s race.
