Fans of the Tour de France can now follow every stage of the race from space, thanks to Google Earth.

Between 1 July and 23 July, every stage of the race can be visited virtually using Google Earth's satellite images, enabling Tour de France fans to fly over all the different parts of the race, including the famous mountain stage. 

In a click, users will be able to access information on the race of the day and the various stages (town of arrival, town of departure, average time of the riders, for example).    
The Tour de France on Google Earth is available in French, German, Spanish and English at the official website of the race.
