CBS Goes For The Yellow Jersey

CBS SPORTS SPECTACULAR's exclusive network coverage of the 2007 TOUR DE FRANCE begins the first of its three hour-long specials on Sunday, July 15 (2:00-3:00 PM, ET).

The second installment of special race coverage continues on Sunday, July 22 (1:00-2:00 PM, ET) and concludes with the final stage on Sunday, July 29 (1:00-2:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network.

For the 94th year, the TOUR DE FRANCE brings the finest cycling athletes from around the globe to one place for one race in what some consider the world's greatest annual sporting event. This year, the race commenced in London and will proceed through 20 grueling stages, covering a total distance of 3,570 kilometers.

Graig Hummer joins CBS Sports' TOUR DE FRANCE announce team along with "the voice of cycling" analyst Phil Liggett, who is working his 35th consecutive year on Tour television coverage, and industry veteran and former pro rider of seven Tours, Paul Sherwen, in calling the action.

CBS Sports once again partners with Versus to broadcast the 2007 TOUR DE FRANCE. Vic Frank serves as producer of CBS Sports' coverage. Production support will be provided by Versus.
