Tour de France: Stage 8: Watch live today on TV, live stream and live ticker

The Tour de France offers today’s eighth stage (from 2 pm in the LIVETICKER) the last chance for the sprinters to win the day. SPOX will give you all the important information about the section and show you where you can follow the stage live on TV and on the Internet.

The stage leads over 181 km from Dreux to Amiens and has only two mountain classifications of the lowest category with a relatively flat topography. They are at kilometres 35 and 71.5 and the sprint classification of the day awaits after 76.5 kilometres.

Due to these conditions and the completely flat stage final, the sprinters around two-time stage winner Fernado Gaviria and yesterday’s winner Dylan Groenwegen should once again make up the victory among themselves.

The start of the stage takes place at 11:35 o’clock, the finish is expected between 15:36 and 15:57 o’clock.

On the eighth day of the broadcast there will be some changes compared to the other stages, both on ARD and Eurosport.

As usual, One shows the start of the stage from 11:25 a.m., before taking over from 1 p.m. The first. However, the stage final from 14:40 runs again at One.

Eurosport 1, on the other hand, will not broadcast on this day. The stage will only be shown on the pay TV channel Eurosport 2.

The sports show offers a continuous live stream of the stage on the Internet. In addition, Eurosport will broadcast the section in the chargeable Eurosport Player.

If you can’t follow the stage on any of these channels, SPOX also offers you a live ticker for the stage.

There have been hardly any changes in the competition jerseys in the past few days. Greg van Avermaet will probably only be allowed to keep his yellow jersey for the next two stages, after that it will be too difficult for him. The Green Jersey is already worn by the five-time winner of the points classification Peter Sagan. But the fight for the dotted jersey will not really start until next week with the important mountain classifications on the difficult stages.

The first seven stages were dominated by two riders. Colombian sprinter Fernando Gaviria and Slovak all-rounder Peter Sagan each won two stages. Yesterday, however, the Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen won for the first time.

Greg van Avermaet has been leading the overall standings since the third stage, but has no chance of defending the Yellow Jersey on the heavier stages. Numerous aspirants for the overall victory like Chris Froome, Nairo Qunitana and Richie Porte already lost some time to the top due to defects and falls.

As always, the 2018 Tour de France will consist of 21 stages, with two days off. More information about the stages can be found here.
