A post-Tour ramble

Aug 08, 08:54 PM

August 8 | In the first episode of The Cycling Podcast since the Tour de France, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss everything that has happened since the peloton reached the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

Richard is back from his visit to the San Sebastian Classic and updates on a race won brilliantly by Julian Alaphilippe but marred by a horrible crash that left Egan Bernal, Mikel Landa and Pierre Latour among the riders nursing bad injuries.

We also begin the countdown to the Vuelta a España, the final grand tour of the year, discuss the latest problems for former Tour de France champion Jan Ullrich and weigh up the merits of the UCI president's latest ideas to liven up the stage races.

The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science In Sport.
