The Tour de France is the world's most prestigious and most difficult bicycle race.
Of the three foremost bike races (the others being the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a España), the Tour de France attracts the world's best riders.
The 2023 Tour de France is the 110th edition, starting in Bilbao, Spain on 1 July and ending with the final stage on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. What a cracking field we have lined up to do battle this year!!
It's hard not to watch all the 21 stages of the world's biggest annual sporting event. Even harder here in Southern Africa where it's mid winter off season and a great time to enjoy some cosy feet up recovery hibernation.
Why get the 148 page, large-format Official Guide? - Apart from being a beautiful coffee table keepsake, it includes all the official TDF website info but in a much more easily digestible format and in much more detail.
Those who don't know cycling well will find it easy to understand what can seem like a complex event. Each stage is profiled with a map that helps you put key climbs and stage towns into perspective.
It's got maps of every stage, plus full team and stage profiles, as well as stage start and end times which are particularly useful to have in one place when planning your live tv viewing.
Southern Africans always enjoy our local riders profiles, comprehensive race calendar of local road and gravel events, plus latest cycling equipment insights.
Only 139 bucks is less than R1 per large format high gloss page - cheaper than a double burger, coke & chips - but oh so much healthier + yours to enjoy for 3 weeks solid.
