Riders would ordinarily be in the thick of the Tour de France at this time of year. But the event has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, with fans instead being treated to a virtual edition of the classic race.
Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme said: “I cannot imagine the month of July without cycling.
“Thanks to the virtual Tour de France, which will be widely broadcast on TV, the champions and their fans will fill in the void left by the Tour de France, which will reunite with the public in Nice on 29 August.
“The Tour Virtuel puts technology to work for passion and the cause of cycling for everyone.”
How to watch the Virtual Tour de France
Fans will be able to watch the action online via Zwift – using their website or YouTube channel.
Additional coverage will also be shown by Eurosport, with streaming available on the Eurosport Player.
