Jul 22, 08:38 PM

The Tour de France reached Carcassonne, the final stop before the second rest day, and Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau discuss a second consecutive stage that was dominated by the breakaway riders.

And the Astana team was celebrating for the second day in a row after Omar Fraile’s victory in Mende on Saturday.

This time it was their Danish rider Magnus Cort who won. We hear how Astana planned their strategy from Cort’s team-mate Michael Valgren and sports director Lars Michaelsen and also from Trek-Segafredo’s Steven De Jongh about how their chance slipped away.

Team Sky’s Nicolas Portal looks forward to the Pyrenees and Frans Maassen of LottoNL-Jumbo explains how they might use their twin threats in the mountains.

All that plus the usual discussion of the latest news from the Tour de France.
