Originally slated for a 27 June start, the coronavirus pandemic ruined that plan. But fans will still get three weeks packed full of action in the world's most famous bike race. Egan Bernal took out the 2019 crown and is back for a shot at consecutive wins.

Former winners Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome won't be on the starting line this year. There will still be a star-studded field, with Tom Dumoulin, Julian Alaphilippe, Thibaut Pinot, Primož Roglič, Miguel Ángel López and Nairo Quintana among those tipped to figure prominently.

Australians will also feature strongly once again, with sprinter Caleb Ewan aiming to build on the 3 stage wins he enjoyed in 2019. Veteran Richie Porte will lead the way for his Trek–Segafredo team and the Australian-run Mitchelton-Scott team will also be targeting stage wins in 2020.

When is the 2020 Tour de France?

There are 176 riders scheduled to take part in the race, which is considered to be cycling's biggest showdown.

How to watch the Tour de France live in Australia

SBS has the exclusive rights to broadcast the Tour de France until 2023, so the free-to-air network handles all the coverage available in Australia. This includes mobile and online rights, which is actually great news. You'll be able to stream the Tour de France online if you're unable to catch the action on TV without spending any cash.

The 2020 edition of Tour de France will be available as a live streaming broadcast on the ŠKODA Tour Tracker App, as well as on SBS On Demand and via TV broadcasts on SBS and SBS Viceland. Start and finish times vary from stage to stage, so make sure to check broadcast schedules to stay updated as to when live racing is on. In general though, you will want to tune into SBS from around 8:30 pm AEST every night.

The ŠKODA Tour Tracker App is available via the web, or you can download it to your smartphone or tablet from Google Play or the App Store. Besides live streaming of every stage, the app also offers stats, GPS data, live interactive stage maps and full replays and highlights.
