SBS Director of Sport, Ken Shipp said: SBS is firmly established as the home of first class cycling coverage. It's at the heart of what we do with 300 hours of cycling content across the network each year, including the La Vuelta, and the Giro dItalia. We are excited to once again bring one of the largest and most prestigious sporting events in the world to life. Im incredibly proud of the dedication and round-the-clock work from the SBS on-air and production team who bring the Tour de France to Australian viewers every year, and we are delighted to continue offering the visual feast that this wonderful challenge brings until 2030.
