TSN2 delivers 139 hours of coverage from the Tour de France, as Canadian Ryder Hesjedal looks to make his mark in the 100th running of the world’s most famous cycling event. Coverage begins tomorrow (Saturday, June 29) at 9 a.m. ET on TSN2 and continues until July 21. In addition to daytime coverage, TSN2 will feature Tour de France recap shows in prime time (see complete broadcast schedule below).

The Tour de France is also available on TSN Mobile TV and in French on RDS and RDS2.

TSN2 will feature NBC Sports Group’s broadcast coverage of the Tour de France, with acclaimed voices of cycling, Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen, calling all the race action, plus correspondent Steve Porino reporting from aboard a motorcycle on the race course.

The demanding three-week event features 198 of the world’s best cyclists representing 22 teams in pursuit of the coveted yellow jersey. This year’s Tour de France visits Corsica for the first time and also passes through 10 UNESCO World Heritage sites on the road to the finish line at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Victoria, B.C. native Ryder Hesjedal heads Team Garmin-Sharp in his seventh Tour de France, following an impressive 2012 season, in which he became the first Canadian to win the Giro d’Italia. Now, Hesjedal is looking to become the first Canadian to win the Tour de France, competing against rising star Chris Froome, perennial favourite Alberto Contador, and 2013 Giro d’Italia winner Vincenzo Nibali.

Fans can follow the Tour de France on TSN Digital platforms – including TSN.ca and the TSN app for iPhone and iPad – with a preview of riders to watch in 2013, daily standings, a day-to-day tracker of every Canadian rider in all four classifications, and a detailed history of Canadians at the race, as well as up-to-date news and highlights.
