Le Tour de France 2007

Img 0366 4TourdefrancealpsTourdefrancefinishfinal

This year the Tour de France starts on Saturday 7 July in London and finishes as always going up the Champs in Paris on Sunday 29 July.

Cycling in France then starts just across the English channel heading down to the French Alps for the mountain sections of the race. Heading down to the south of France the race passes through Marseille, Montpellier then along the Spanish border for more mountain passes. On its way back up to Paris the Tour goes as far as Cognac before hopping on a train to get them close to Paris for the final stage.

SBS in Australia are again televising the race. You not only get to see the race but also the gorgeous French countryside and romantic historic villages along the Tour's path. In the spirit of the festivities and highlighting that the race isn't just about cycling, Gabriel Gate presents a delicious series to accompany the live coverage presenting a gastronomic Taste le Tour following the real Tour's journey.
