VeloNews to publish official Tour de France guide

Published April 23, 2018

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — VeloNews will release the Official Guide to the Tour de France in early June.

VeloNews has an exclusive North American agreement with race owner Amaury Sport Organization, allowing it to offer exclusive content not available to other North American outlets. Subscribers will receive the Official Tour de France Guide on June 1 and it will release on newsstands on June 12. Advertising space closes May 3.

The guide will include analysis, previews of the teams and top riders, tech reports on rider and team equipment choices for key stages, overviews of bikes and gear, as well as the official course maps, stage-by-stage profiles, timetables, and predictions for stage winners and the overall winner.

"The Tour de France Guide makes watching the race even more suspenseful and fun," said Fred Dreier, the editor-in-chief of VeloNews. "Our rider profiles and rankings, gear and tech coverage, and expectations for each stage deepen a viewer's appreciation for the racing as it unfolds each day. The guide is so essential, our own staff uses it every day during the Tour."

Tour de France race director Christian Prudhomme said, "My colleagues in North America tell me the VeloNews Official Tour de France Guide is their constant companion each July. It's hard to imagine watching a single stage without referencing this indispensable resource. All those who wish to reach cycling fans must be in the Official Guide to the Tour de France."
