The Tour de France is arguably the world’s toughest event – but it’s just got a whole lot tougher.
One of the few sporting occasions where fans don’t pay to watch its stars, one of the Tour’s charms has been allowing its followers to get up close and personal. You are literally in touching distance of your heroes.
That’s especially true on the arduous climbs in the Pyrenees and the Alps where hundreds of thousands of cycling fanatics line the roads.
