Stage 6 | Vesoul / Troyes | Tour de France 2017
On Thursday the Tour de France returned to the flatlands after the mountains of the previous day, with the sprinters doing battle again in Troyes. Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Francois Thomazeau of The Cycling Podcast discuss the day’s main talking points, and we get reaction from Jack Bauer of Quick Step Floors and Marc Sergeant, the man in charge of the Lotto-Soudal team.
Troyes is a town with a rich British cycling heritage, with many top British riders – most recently Adam Yates – living in the area and riding for one of the two local clubs. We hear from one of them, Rod Ellingworth, who lived there in the 1990s and is now race coach at Team Sky.
