The 10 British riders of the 2015 Tour de France

A year on from a disappointingly low four British riders starting the Tour de France, the 2015 edition will feature 10 riders from the United Kingdom

In July 2014, the Tour de France kicked off on Yorkshire soil with just four British riders among the 198 who crossed the starting line. Of those, only three crossed the finish line of the opening stage, while just one made it all the way to Paris three-weeks later.

Roll the clock forward 12 months and the tally of British riders has risen to 10, equalling the record set back in 1955.
