All the speculation, build-up events and hard, hard training are over – it's almost finally time for the 2019 Tour de France 2019 to commence. In it's 109th year, the excitement and intensity seems to grow larger with every race as the world's best riders are pushed to the limit – and even a bit beyond. Geraint Thomas, as defending champion, will have to work hard this year with tough competition from all sides. Luckily for you, it's a much easier task to live stream Tour de France cycling action from wherever you are in the world by simply reading on.
The 2019 Tour de France is looking like an exceptionally exciting one as there is no clear favourite with lots of strong riders out this year. Four-time champ Chris Froome has already crashed out with serious fractures so he won't be in with a chance at a fifth win this time. His Ineos teammate and current champion Geraint Thomas also crashed out recently but will be back to defend his title this year.
Another potential contender that's pulled out this year is 2017 Giro champion, and second placer on last year's Tour, Tom Dumoulin of Team Sunweb. After knee problems he's backed out.
So all in all there is a very open road this year that could make for some fantastic battles. The chance to win is more within reach than ever for some who may have not stood a chance otherwise. Keep your eyes peeled for Team Ineos' up-and-coming Egan Bernal, the 2014 winner Vincenzo Nibali and Richie Porte, Romain Bardet, Thibaut Pinot and Nairo Quintana.

Use a VPN to live stream the Tour de France 2019 from outside your country
If you're in any of the UK, US, Canada, Australia or New Zealand, keep on scrolling to see where your daily 2019 Tour de France live stream can be found.
That's all very well if you're in your home country, but if you're away on business or your holidays and try to watch one of those feeds, you'll soon discover that they're geo-blocked.
That's certainly annoying, but not a disaster – downloading and installing a VPN can come to your rescue. Doing so allows you to log your laptop or mobile device's IP address on to a server back in your home country. Thus allowing you to watch the Tour de France online as if you were back at home.
