Tour de France 2018| Stage 6 | Brest – Mûr de Bretagne

Jul 12, 08:31 PM

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau discuss a chaotic finale to a stage that finished on the Mûr de Bretagne in Brittany.

In last night’s podcast we asked Daniel Martin if he felt the Mûr de Bretagne finish suited him better and today he provided the answer.

We also discuss the misfortune for Romain Bardet and Tom Dumoulin and ask whether Dumoulin’s time penalty for drafting behind a team car after his mechanical problem was a fair punishment.

We weigh up who will be happy and who less so after a tense opening six days of racing. Two relatively straightforward sprint stages are to come (if there is such a thing) and then the Tour hits the cobbles. We speak to Matt White of Mitchelton-Scott and Servais Knaven of Team Sky about whether the cobbled sections are too much for the Tour.
