Watch the 2016 women’s La Course by Le Tour de France live

I’ve had migraines all week, so haven’t been able to put a guide up earlier, so here’s a brief one.

La Course by Le Tour de France , the women’s race at the final stage of the Tour de France, is on Sunday 24th July 2016, and starts at 13:15 Euro CEST (12:15 UK BST; 7:15am EDT; 9:15pm AEST) – it’s about 2 hours long, and most TV seems to start between 13:45 and 14:00 CEST.  You can find the broadcasters in your are by going to the race website and hitting the broadcasters tab at the bottom to see where it’s shown in your area (eg Eurosport and ITV4 in the UK) – and the usual livestream websites (here, here, here) will have feeds for you.

Follow the race before it starts with the La Course twitter and the #LaCourse hashtag.  It’s a bit of a frustrating race, because of course the route is iconic – up and down the Champs Elysées, with the 2 sharp corners into and out of the underpass under the Jardins de Tuileries – but it’s a weird distance, 89km, so it’s not a Crit, with all the adrenaline-fuelled action they give us, but not a proper road race.  Luckily the women’s peloton make the most of being in front of international cameras, and will race the hell out of it regardless!  There are some big names missing because of Rio, but the startlist is here.

What happened in the previous two years?  Videos and more from 2014 and 2015.
