This year's race, the 102nd time it has been held, will take place from 4-26 July, and will start in Utrecht, Netherlands and finish three weeks later on the world-famous Champs-Élysées in Paris, France. The route, which is comprised of 21 stages and covers a distance of over 3,000km, will take the riders through three countries and across some of the most challenging terrain in world cycling.

He continued, "The global coverage of the event provides us with a unique platform to reach existing and new audiences and is a perfect complement to our ongoing promotional activities."

More than 6,000 hours of TV coverage will be dedicated to the event with reports broadcast in 190 countries by 100 channels. In addition to the estimated 12 million spectators which are expected to view the race as it crosses France, Belgium and the Netherlands, the TV coverage is estimated to generate an estimated 3.5 billion views worldwide.

As part of its sponsorship, Bostik will participate in the famous Tour de France 'Publicity Caravan' which accompanies the race. Three eye-catching promotional vehicles will take part in this unique spectacle and will treat spectators to a variety of gifts and giveaways while they await the riders.
