Stage by stage, rest day by rest day, the Tour de France will be re-animated on stage
from the cobbles of Roubaix, over Alpe d’Huez towards the grand finale in Paris, Tour de Ned will recreate the gut-wrenching, edge of the seat drama of the race.
Ned Boulting enjoys reliving memories of the best moments from the summer, and readily admits the show comes from a wonky perspective - of a man who is paid to watch the telly and shout out names as riders climb, crash, stop for a poo and attack each other.
The journalist, television presenter and best-selling author will also show 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, and joining Chris Boardman, as he settles down for his mid-afternoon nap.
From motorway service station to the top of the Pyrenees, via two star hotels in industrial estates and private jets (they wish - just kidding), Tour de Ned will bring to life the thousands of kilometres travelled as they unfold alongside the grandest of Grand Tours.
Speaking of the Tour de Ned, Ned 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. Whether you’re cycling mad, like cycling a bit, or accidentally booked the wrong tickets thinking I was somebody else, you’re in for an experience worthy of the world’s most bonkers sporting event. “
