The Classic Channel 4 Tour de France TV Theme as a Ringtone!

I grew up in the 1980s and my first experience of the Tour de France was with the 1/2 hour highlight shows on Channel 4 (here in the UK).

And the theme tune to those highlights was truly ‘ear-conic’! (No current cycling theme tune get close…)

Well, now you can re-live some classic Tour de France memories with the original Channel 4 Tour de France TV Theme Tune ringtone.

There are two versions, a full length one (33 secs) and a shorter one (22 secs); and they’re available as MP3s or iPhone (M4R) ringtones.

  1. Thanks so much for this. Grew up in the 80’s also and this theme tune brings back amazing memories watching the Tour with my Dad.

  2. Hello, how do I download this onto my iPhone? It still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up when I hear this. Just reminds me of being so excited watching indurain!

  3. Just found this: brilliant, am all set for this year’s Tour now! Like others have commented, I grew up with the mid 80s C4 coverage with Phil and Paul and this tune will forever take me back there…happy memories!
    I’d been looking for ways of making a ringtone of this and getting tied in knots before having the genius idea of seaching to see if someone else had already done it! So thank you
