There will be analysis about the Tour de France of 2016 until next July and the Grand Départ of the 104th edition of the race in Düsseldorf.

Commentary on commentary: part 4 – David Millar

For the fourth instalment of the series on cycling commentary we caught up with David Millar from ITV about an hour before he was due to go on air to call the uphill time trial of stage 17. The co-commentator for the UK broadcasters of the Tour de France needs little introduction; many know Millar from his time on the bike.
