Tour de France on ITV?

Anyone know what ITV's coverage of the Tour is going to be? Nightly reports and any live stages?

I've not seen anything comfirmed yet and the schedules are currently published up to the end of June. ITV4 are showing the 2008 race review on 28th June (14.15-16.15) and I'd be surprised if the coverage differs this year.

I'm hoping for full coverage of the Ventoux stage, like that provided for the l'Alpe d'Huez stage last year  :thumbsup:

They said last year that this year there will be even more coverage. There will be live feeds every day of the Tour, and an hours coverage each evening. ITV4 have bought the broadcasting rights till 2013.

ITV's TdF page gives a bit more detail.

We won't see the fastest riders in the prologue - we'll be on the way to some stupid ride or other  ;)
