ITV4 is currently running a highlights package for the Tour de France.
The Tour of Britain has previously been televised by the BBC, but only once the Tour has all but finished. ITV will broadcast a daily highlights programme of both the Tours of Ireland and Britain on ITV4, Men and Motors, itv.com and ITV mobile as well as new, live coverage via a red button interactive service.
