This year's Tour de France takes place from July 5-27

For only the second time in its history, the race will start on English soil with a Grand Depart comprising of two days in Yorkshire and a third from Cambridge to London.

In addition to that, defending champion Chris Froome is favourite to win the race for the second year in a row and hand Britain its third successive victory.

However, the Team Sky rider is set to face stiff competition from a host of talented and decorated rivals, not least a resurgent Alberto Contador, himself a two-time Tour winner.

The race will run from July 5-27. Here's how the action will pan out...

Key stages

Stage five: The cobbles of northern France could see general classification contenders lose early time, or worse, crash out of the race altogether. It should be a great watch.
Stage 13: It's difficult to pick between the mountain stages, but the long climb to Chamrousse could see significant splits and do irreparable damage.
Stage 20: The only individual time trial of the race could decide the destination of the yellow jersey.
