TV presenter Ned Boulting is to the re-enact parts of the 2018 Tour de France in a new theatre show starting in the Autumn. Tour de Ned will visit 21 theatres across the UK.
"Stage by stage, rest day by rest day, the Tour de France will be re-animated before your very eyes, drug busts and all," said a promo for the new show.
"Tour de Ned will also lift the curtain, with exclusive video of footage of life on the road with the much-loved ITV Tour de France team, inviting you inside David Millar’s Maserati, alongside Gary Imlach’s polo shirts as he steams them, joining Chris Boardman, as he settles down for his mid-afternoon nap."
Boulting said: “Tour de Ned is the living proof, based on the fact people keep showing up, that you can create a theatrical show relating to cycling."
The tour starts in Southampton on 28th September and finishes in Lincoln on 17th November.
Boulting's previous theatre show – Bikeology – sold over 20,000 tickets.
