From rolling blogs through to podcasts, following the Tour has never been so easy

Breakaway riders — Tour de France 2020 route: How to watch live TV coverage and follow the race stages
There are many ways the follow the Tour de France, though we would recommend you keep up to speed with us, on Telegraph Sport's live daily rolling blog along with our post-race analysis and results service Credit: GETTY IMAGES

Throughout the month of September the focus of the cycling world will centre on France as the 107th edition of the 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 off on its 3,470km journey from Nice, there follows summit finishes on the Orcieres-Merlette and Mont Aigoual on stages five and six before the race heads towards the Pyrenees. Further mountain stage follow in the Alps before the penultimate stage of the race sees the riders tackle the Planche des Belles Filles climb in an individual time trial.

Those with subscriptions to Eurosport are in luck as the self-styled 'home of cycling' is broadcasting each and every stage, while the recently-launched GCN Race Pass app will also be showing the action. In addition to Eurosport, terrestrial channels ITV and the Welsh language S4C will also broadcast live with their highlights packages going out each night.

Alternatively, if you are stuck at work then you can follow all the action, as it unfolds, in our daily live blogs that will include news, analysis and reaction. Telegraph Sport will also provide full results details.

Finally, each evening The Cycling Podcast will be publishing a daily round-up of what's been happening on and off the road to Paris while each weekday throughout the race Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau will be producing their excellent KM0 episodes.
