For the second time in a row, France Télévisions will produce images of all 21 stages of the Tour de France in its entirety. Eurosport will offer the race across Europe, with more than 40 other broadcasters involved in showing the race across the world. A thorough list is available at letour.fr.
The TDF will experiment this season with a different concept for the attribution of intermediate bonus seconds: there will be present only at stages one to nine -except for the Cholet TTT-. 10-6-4″ will be up for grabs at every finish – plus, a bonus sprint (diverse from the intermediate sprints, only counting for the green jersey; it will be clearly differentiated at the profiles, with a yellow icon), always close to the end of the stage, will offer 3-2-1″ to the top three over the line. There won’t be any intermediate bonuses after the first rest day; only the finish ones.
We take advantage of this section to offer some additional links, which cover the stage categories and the three rankings depending on those: the green points jersey, the polka dot KOM jersey and the outside time limits (missing in the latter: 25% for the ITT, 30% for the TTT).
Riders aiming at the white jersey of best young rider must have been born after 1st January 1993. Lastly, the team time trial will seen times for all teams registered when the fourth rider from each squad crosses the finish.
