Allan Peiper was in the UAE Team Emirates car behind Tadej Pogacar during the dramatic time trial on La Planche des Belles Filles.
The 60-year-old Australian describes the young Slovenian's victory over this compatriot Primoz Roglic as the pinnacle of his life and in this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Lionel talks to him about this year's Tour de France.
It was a particularly poignant race for Peiper, who was diagnosed with cancer last year and was unsure whether he'd be able to work at the Tour de France.
In this conversation, he talks about how he helped manage Pogacar through his sensational debut Tour, how management techniques have changed since his own racing days and what winning the yellow jersey meant to him.
