The Tour de France is soon upon us and now is the time to get your hands on the definitive guide to this year’s race.



Can Bradley Wiggins better his remarkable ride to fourth overall last year? Can Alberto Contador fend off his rivals in the mountains to take a third Tour win? Is Lance Armstrong too old? What’s the secret to Mark Cavendish’s Tour success? All these questions and more are answered in Tour, the essential guide to the world’s greatest sporting event.



Tour Guide features an exclusive interview with Wiggins and visits Dario Cioni at home, an Italian who is likely to be one of Wiggins’ key domestiques.



Tour also takes an in-depth look at all of the stages of the race, with maps and guides and advice on how to go and watch. All the teams are covered too and we rate their chances.



All the overall contenders are rated and we take a look at some of the bikes and the latest technology the stars will be riding in the Tour.



Also included with the magazine is a free double-sided Wiggins and Cavendish musette, a giant Tour de France poster and four postcards. All this and more.
