Tour 2014 preview: Before the Grand Départ

The latest Telegraph Cycling Podcast, supported by Jaguar is a preview of the 101st Tour de France ahead of this weekend’s Grand Départ in Yorkshire.

Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the atmosphere in Leeds and look ahead to Saturday’s first stage to Harrogate.

There is an interview with Charly Wegelius, the Garmin-Sharp directeur sportif, who discusses the team’s difficult decision to leave David Millar out of their nine-man line-up. Plus we hear from three-time Tour champion Greg LeMond about the advantages of a team having two leaders.

Was at the team presentation last night what a great time. But I couldn't help but wonder, has a grand tour team presentation ever been so widely televised?.
