 SAN DIEGO, July 4, 2014 – The Tour de France starts its second century of competition on foreign shores in 2014.

The Tour de France is the third most watched sporting event worldwide, after the Olympics and the FIFA World Cup. No surprise. It makes for spectacular sports television. With World Cup soccer achieving record ratings in the U.S., perhaps this will be a good year for another international sport with rising American stars in play for a podium spot.

In the United States, Tour coverage begins on Saturday, July 5 from the starting line in the British Isles in Leeds, England, and concludes on Sunday, July 27 on the Champs Elysees on NBC, the NBC Sports Network on cable, and online at NBCSports.com.

NBC Sports Network will feature over 70 hours of live coverage during the 23 days of the 101st edition of the Tour de France, cycling’s World Series. All stages of the Tour de France will be live streamed on NBCSports.com and within the NBC Sports Live Extra mobile app.
