Stage 14: Blagnac - Rodez Update

It was billed for sometime that this stage would end up being a duel between Michael Matthews and Greg Van Avermaet, and the finish did not disappoint. Matthews ended up the strongest winning by more than a bike length over Van Avermaet, with Edvald Boasson Hagen taking third. Chris Froome and his Sky team worked hard over the final 10km and were rewarded with Froome finishing 7th, with enough of a gap over Fabio Aru to take back his yellow jersey, which he now holds with an 18 second lead.

Stage 12: Pau - Peyragudes Update

There is a new leader today in the Tour de France with Fabio Aru proving stronger on the day than Chris Froome over the final 300m of the stage into Peyragudes. In a select group of only 9 riders, Romain Bardet had the legs to take the victory, ahead of Rigoberto Urán with Aru in third spot. Froome crossed 22 seconds behind Bardet in 7th, which was enough to hold the second place on General Classification, 6 seconds behind Aru.

Stage 11: Eymet - Pau Update

Stage 10: Périgueux - Bergerac Update

Marcel Kittel showed he is a class above the remaining sprinters with a win into Bergerac a bike length ahead of John Degenkolb with Dylan Groenewegen taking third spot. His fourth win in this years race, Kittel becomes the most successful Tour de France German sprinter of all time with 13 victories, pulling ahead of Eric Zabel.

Stage 9: Nantua - Chambéry Update

After one of the longest stages of this years race, it came down to a photo finish between Rigoberto Urán and Warren Barguil to decide the outcome. On the day, Uran did just enough to pip Barguil, with Yellow Jersey holder Chris Froome finishing strongly in third spot. As always, there was plenty of drama during the stage which sadly saw the exit of a number of riders including pre-race favourite Richie Porte who crashed hard on the final descent of the Mont du Chat, breaking a collar bone and pelvis.

Stage 7: Troyes - Nuits-Saint-Georges Update

Marcel Kittel took his third stage vitory in this years Tour by the closest of margins, barely edging out Edvald Boasson Hagen in a photo finish into Nuit-Saint-Georges. At first glance it appears that Boasson Hagen had done just enough to hold off the last second charge from Kittel, but the photo seemed to show Kittel by a hair width. Michael Matthews from SunWeb took third.

Stage 6: Vesoul - Troyes Update

Marcel Kittel took his second sprint victory in this years Tour de France, proving too fast for his rivals, pipping Arnaud Démare and André Greipel on the line into Troyes.

Stage 5: Vittel - La planche des belles filles Update

Italian champion Fabio Aru today emerged as a clear challenger for the overall victory with a punchy victory on the first mountain top finish of this years Tour. His attack in the final few kilometres went unmatched, allowing Aru to solo his way to the summit of La Planche des Belles Filles. Daniel Martin was the strongest of the chase group, coming in second place 16 seconds back, with Chris Froome and Richie Porte a further 4 seconds back.

Unable to stick with the hot pace of the leaders, Geraint Thomas lost his yellow jersey, and gives it to his team leader Froome.

Stage 4: Mondorf-les-Bains - Vittel Update

Drama as always in the Tour de France, with Arnaud Démare taking the first TDF bunch sprint by a Frenchman for 11 years in a crash marred finish of the stage into Vittel. He beat out Peter Sagan and Alexander Kristoff over the line with André Greipel taking fourth. Unfortunately a number of riders were affected by two serious crashes in the final few hundreds metres, the most dramatic when  Peter Sagan forced his way through an impossible gap elbowing Mark Cavendish into the barriers. His heavy fall also took out John Degenkolb and Ben Swift who weren't able to avoid Cavendish.

As a result of his actions, Sagan was first relegated to last place, before eventually being disqualified from the race.

Stage 3: Verviers - Longwy Update

With a sharp climb to the finish into Longwy, Peter Sagan showed his class by out sprinting Michael Matthews and Daniel Martin for the victory. Geraint Thomas remains in yellow.

Stage 2: Düsseldorf - Liège Update

Marcel Kittel won the first battle for the sprinters with his tenth career win in the Tour de France in Liège this morning. He took the stage ahead of Arnaud Démare with André Greipel taking third spot just ahead of Mark Cavendish.

Stage 1: Düsseldorf - Düsseldorf Update

Geraint Thomas won the rain soaked opening Time Trial convincingly, by 5 seconds over Stefan Küng. The Welsh star's Sky Team performed strongly with teammate Vasil Kiryienka taking third spot, and team leader Chris Froome only 12 seconds back in sixth spot.

The weather conditions had an immediate impact on the race with Spaniard Alejandro Valverde crashing and begin forced to withdraw with a suspected fractured patella.
