The 100th Tour de France starts in Corsica on Saturday.

CyclingNews Tour Tracker will offer daily live coverage includes commentary from Cyclingnews reporters, GPS tracking with details of every break-away and time-gap, and a social media feed that will combine links to videos, photos and tweets.

Mark Cantwell, Future Sport’s Digital Product Development Manager, said: “We wanted to design a product that is a natural brand extension for Cyclingnews.com, puts the user experience at its heart and gives them all the Grand Tour information they could possibly need in the palm of their hand. Working with Tour Tracker has been amazing, they are as fanatical about cycling as us with the same aims and goals.”
