Stage 12 Bourg St Maurice – Alpe d’Huez | Tour de France 2018

Jul 19, 09:15 PM

The Tour is won on the Alpe (more often than not) so what does this mean for the yellow jersey?

Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie, François Thomazeau and Orla Chennaoui discuss Geraint Thomas’s second consecutive stage win and ask whether this means he is now Team Sky’s most likely chance of winning the Tour.

We discuss the moves on the mountain – Team Sky’s dominance, Movistar’s frailties, Vincenzo Nibali being knocked off by a motorbike and Romain Bardet’s attacks.

Where does this leave the race for the yellow jersey now? We try to answer that question.
