We're into the final weekend and indeed the last two stages, so it's time to find out how to watch a Tour de France live stream online today. Today's the day you really want to tune in, as the final stage tomorrow is largely seen as a processional affair.

Primož Roglič is still clinging on to the yellow jersey with a 57 second lead with Pogacar and Lopez being the closest challengers going into the final two stages. The Tour de France is seemingly set to make it through to completion despite a rising number of Cronoavirus cases in France which have threatened to bring the race to an early finish throughout.

Tour de France at a glance

The 2020 Tour de France started August 29 and will finish nearly a month later, on September 20. Cycling fans based in the UK can tune in to all stages for free via ITV4 and ITV Hub.

If you're not from the UK, there are plenty of other Tour de France broadcasters around the world.  And if you're outside of the UK, you can try this VPN deal, which will let you tap into ITV's coverage.

Road cycling is unlike most other sports, in that it goes out into the public, and there will indeed be fans lining the roads for this Tour de France. It all adds to the sense of peril surrounding the entire event.

There's even an offer on right now where you can get an additional three months FREE on a 12-month package and save 49%. Happily, ExpressVPN is also compatible with pretty much every device you can think of too.

3: Head over to the service you want. Here you can shop as normal and once you set your location, visit the service you're interested in and sign up as normal or log in, and start watching!
