Throughout the month of July the focus of the cycling world will centre around France as the 104th edition of Tour de France courses the length and breadth of the country, turning its villages and cities yellow as la Grande Boucle heads towards Paris.

After setting of on its 3,540 kilometre journey from Düsseldorf, Germany, the Tour works its way through Belgium and Luxembourg before arriving in France at the end of stage three on Monday, July 3.

Those with subscriptions to Eurosport are in luck, the self-styled 'home of cycling' will be broadcasting every day all the way from Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and, of course, France. Broadcast times and the daily highlights programmes will be shown at different times each day.

In addition to Eurosport, ITV will also be broadcasting live each day while their popular highlights and analysis programme will be beamed into the front rooms – or wherever people choose to watch their televisions nowadays  – of the nation each evening at around tea time.
