Is anybody aware of a source for a 2018 Tour De France schedule, including start times? I can find many sites that have the schedule per day but none seem to include the start times for each stage.

The Official Tour de France website has this information. Alas, it's unlinkable but:

  1. Select "Route 2018" from the top menu bar.
  2. Click the stage you're interested in.
  3. Scroll down to just above the map, where you see "Sport Side"*.
  4. Click "Time schedule".

Times are given in local time, which is CEST (GMT+2).


* The TdF website has always had somewhat idiosyncratic English. I don't know why they don't just get a native speaker to write their English content.

Looks like this is it:

Times seem to be in Central European Time, which is GMT+2. For anybody watching in the U.S. Eastern Time (EST) zone it seems subtracting 6 hours provides a correct time adjustment. For example, the 1st stage estimated finish time adjustment would be:

3:15 pm (stated above) Central European Time - 6 hours = 9:15 am U.S. Eastern Time

If anybody more familiar with time zone changes than I am could verify this that would be great.

Now if I can only find a way to view this over the internet without signing up for a paid internet TV package . . .

  • I'd be surprised if the ITV times were CST. they're much more likely to be BST (they're in the UK)
