Stage 11 Albertville – La Rosière | Tour de France 2018
In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau discuss stage 11 of the Tour de France, which was the first mountain-top finish of the race.
As expected, Team Sky’s Geraint Thomas took the yellow jersey from Greg Van Avermaet. What was not anticipated was that Thomas would also win the stage. He and his Team Sky team-mate Chris Froome are now first and second overall.
As Team Sky took control of the race, others fell completely out of contention. We ask who can still hope of finishing on the podium in Paris.
And we discuss the fate of the two star sprinters who missed the time cut – Mark Cavendish and Marcel Kittel.
