The Tour de France at Podium Cafe

Tour de France Podium Cafe

Welcome to the Tour de France at Podium Cafe!

It’s all Tour, all the time this month and you’re invited to come along. We’ll have live threads during the race and lots of chat after the race, off-the-wall commentary and tons of fun features. Below, a quick sampler of what to expect during the merry month of July.

The Daily Race

The Daily Race is your go-to spot for all the information you need to follow each day’s stage. Stage profiles, previews, links to live chats, it’s all there!

Live Threads

We love live race chat here at the Podium Cafe. Stop by every day during the stage and banter with fans from around the world. It’s easy and fun and all the cool people are doing it!

Know Your Tour!

Wondering what the Polka Dot jersey means? Why does one rider each day wear a Red Number? Who is the lanterne rouge? Chris answers your Tour de France questions in Know Your Tour.

Post-Race Happy Hour

There’s nothing better than kicking back at your favorite Cafe and reliving the day’s events. Admire the day’s heroes and banter with your friends. Each day, we’ll reserve a table for you!
