Strava gets you intimate with Tour de France pros

For some of us it simply isn't enough to sit back and watch the action. We want to know everything, and that is especially true when we're watching a breakaway on a stage of the Tour de France. 

Thanks to Strava you can now get intimate with your riders. In fact you can quite literally discover what makes them tick, by checking out their heart rates, for instance. 

But there's more, so much more. If there's one thing Strava can do well, it is data and you can fill your boots with it all from the comfort of the sofa. 

What's more, there's a whole list of riders to follow. So get following and get involved.

There's also a segment guide that you can download here
