  • How to watch the Tour de France - free live streams from anywhere

    We're less than two weeks away from the 2019 Tour de France now, and the 106th edition of the Grand Boucle has become, to borrow a phrase from a former Prime Minister, a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    The injuries and subsequent withdrawals of four-time winner Chris Froome (Team Ineos) and 2018 runner-up Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) – not to mention the recent Tour de Suisse crash and abandonment by defending Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas (Team Ineos) – have left the race wide open.

    Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma), who was fourth at the Tour de France last year behind Froome, raced the Giro this year and so will sit this Tour out, with his Jumbo-Visma team choosing to support Steven Kruijswijk instead. The Dutchman is the only rider from the 2018 top five, aside from Thomas, returning to the race this year.

    This all means the 2019 Tour de France could be a wild affair, with an up-and-coming rider like Team Ineos' Colombian Egan Bernal possibly having a chance to ride for his own ambitions alongside established veterans like Jakob Fuglsang, the Astana leader who won an impressive victory at Dauphine. Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida), the 2014 winner, has shown good form and will be a threat for the GC, as will Richie Porte (Trek-Segafredo), Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale), Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ), Nairo Quintana (Movistar), Rigoberto Uran (EF Education First) and Enric Mas (Deceuninck-QuickStep).

    Needless to say, you won't want to miss a moment of the 2019 Tour de France. Cyclingnews is here with all the information you need to watch the race from anywhere.

Operation Spartan

Shielding Vulnerable Road Users

Although many of you will have kept logging the miles through the winter months, the turn of spring usually sees more cyclists getting out and enjoying the roads of North Yorkshire, and we want to make sure everyone stays safe.

Our partners, North Yorkshire Police, have launched an operation which seeks to identify vulnerable road users. Through a mixture of education and enforcement, Op Spartan aims to improve the attitudes of those who use our roads and increase the level of safety for all.

Seen  behaviour on the road that concerns you?

Spartan is a force-wide operation where officers and the public are encouraged to submit intelligence regarding instances of anti-social use of vehicles or poor driving. A profile of information will be collated for the police to assess and act upon, to ensure guidance and advice can be provided to those who need it.

Op Spartan is inviting the public to submit details of instances of dangerous or anti-social driving they have witnessed via the driving concern form below.The driving concern form captures the details of the incident and requests information such as vehicle number plate, so police can carry out the relevant checks and follow up with engagement or enforcement if required.

Driving concern report form

The Major Collision Investigation Team will collate the information and then take the appropriate course of action. This may be the registered owner of the vehicle is contacted by letter to suggest that their driving behaviour be amended to avert possible future collisions. More serious reports may involve a personal visit by a traffic officer and could ultimately result in prosecution

Video footage can be sent directly to the email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If the anti-social driving behaviour results in an emergency or immediate risk, please use either 999 or 101
