In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau are in a bustling square in Grenoble.
They recap a stage to Villard-de-Lans which was won by the Bora-Hansgrohe rider Lennard Kamna, who succeeded where he and his teammate failed last week when they were outfought by Dani Martinez.
We hear from Team Ineos Grenadiers boss Dave Brailsford about how they are recalibrating after defending champion Egan Bernal faltered at the weekend.
And from Rod Ellingworth, enjoying his first Tour as the big boss of Bahrain-McLaren and hoping Mikel Landa can still make a run for the podium.
