Tour de France 2022: How to Watch the Alpine Stages and Paris Finish

Men in spandex will race bicycles up and down mountains to determine the winner at the end of the month. Here's how to stream the action live in the US.

The Tour de France is past its midpoint, with 14 stages complete and seven more to go before the cyclists cross the finish line in Paris on Sunday, July 24. We have a new leader after a grueling, midweek mountain stage: Jonas Vingegaard of Denmark took the yellow jersey from Tadej Pogačar of Slovenia this past Wednesday. Heading into Stage 15 on Sunday, Pogačar is 2 minutes, 22 seconds behind Vingegaard, with Geraint Thomas of Wales and Romain Bardet of France both a few seconds behind Pogačar. 

After a rest day on Monday, the tour heads to the Pyrenees for two mountain stages next week on Wednesday, July 20, and Thursday, July 21. These two stages will go a long way in deciding who will wear the yellow jersey on the podium on the Champs-Elysées in Paris on Sunday, July 24.

Here's what you need to know about how to watch the Tour de France live without cable.
