SBS Director of Sport, Ken Shipp said:

“Australian cycling fans have clearly been captivated by the action of the 2024 Tour de France and are enthusiastically tuning in to SBS for all the colour and excitement.

“With nine stages now down and still 11 to go, it’s shaping up to be a massive year for the TDF on the network, and we couldn’t be happier with the audience reception.

“This current generation of cyclists competing is the most interesting and colourful so far; more social media-savvy, more crowd-pleasing and more entertaining. There are fewer Aussies competing this year, but viewing is continuing to grow. The Tour de France is really coming into its own as a major annual viewing event for Australian sport fans to have on their calendar of must-watch events.

“We’re looking forward to showcasing more of the thrills on the road, wonderful local scenery and cuisine, and of course, the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift.”

SBS will provide extensive coverage of both the Tour de France and Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift with the men’s race until July 21, and the women’s race from August 12 to August 18, post the Olympic Games.
