To some (including Teacake), July can mean only one thing – Le Tour De France. As usual, this year's Tour will no doubt bring plenty of excitement and drama, with the top cyclists in the world sparring with one another across 3430.5km (2131.6 miles) of French road. Over the course of 21 days, they'll face 10 flat stages, 6 mountain stages (with 4 summit finishes!), 3 medium mountain stages, 1 individual time trial, and 1 team trial. There will also be 2 rest days thrown in for good measure

Great Britain has 5 riders completing in the Tour - kept your eyes peeled for the following: Mark Cavendish, HTC-Columbia - David Millar, Garmin-Cervelo Ben Swift, Sky - Geraint Thomas, Sky - Bradley Wiggins, Sky.
