100th Tour de France is cycling through!

Tour2013REVWatch two USA teams fly through France in 21 stages as NBC Sports carries the 100th Tour de France from June 29 to July 21.

The 22 teams competing this year will race a grueling 3,404 kilometers (2,115 miles). The 18th stage poses a much-anticipated challenge: Racers will have to climb the Alpe-d’Huez, a formidable mountain in the Alps, twice. This Tour is the first since 2003 in which the entire route lies within France. For more information, please click here.
