Watch legends compete and new stars rise with Tour de France tickets, available now to buy or sell on StubHub.
A uniquely gruelling European tour
First held in 1903, the Tour de France was interrupted only by the two World Wars and has gradually risen through the ranks to become one of the world's premier cycling races. Part of the World Tour, it is also one of the three European Grand Tours along with the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España, and is regarded by many riders as the holy grail of cycling. To be a Tour de France cyclist - let alone winner like Chris Froome or Bradley Wiggins - requires formidable grit, skill, and strength both mental and physical; of the approximately 20 teams of eight riders that begin, only a few can dream of crossing the finishing line first. Alternating between clockwise and anti-clockwise circuits of France, the race sometimes slips over the border into other countries like Belgium or Switzerland, regularly includes the island of Corsica, and always features tough stints through the Alps and Pyrenees. Depending on which stage you chose to watch, you'll be treated to beautiful landscapes and perhaps a nail-biting mountaintop finish, of which Alpe d'Huez and Mont Ventoux are among the most feared and fabled. Whether you're an avid cycling fan or simply want to see what all the talk is about, Tour de France tickets will guarantee you a unique and utterly thrilling sports experience.
Feel the suspense of each Tour de France stage
While the Tour de France route changes every year, the race is always divided into 21 stages and a couple of time trials, which cover around 3,500 km of road in 23 days. The Tour de France 2018, for example, which began in Noirmoutier-en-L'île, saw the cyclists cover 3,349 km at an average speed of 40.2 km/h before they reached the final laps on the Champs-élysées in Paris. While it is no longer the case that the slowest rider is eliminated after each Tour de France stage, speed is everything in this merciless race, which often sees incredibly close finishes and dreams of glory dashed by a few seconds lost on challenging terrain. Each day the winner wears the much-coveted yellow jersey, adding an extra flash of colour and suspense for the audience watching proceedings from the roadside. It's a different experience entirely to watching track events like the Revolution Series or UCI Track Cycling World Cup. Enjoy hospitality packages or general admission, choose nail-biting mountaintops or the triumphant final stage through the streets of Paris: wherever you opt to place yourself, you'll be assured a dramatic ride.
