episode 103: Stage 14 | Tarbes – Col du Tourmalet | Tour de France 2019


This most enthralling Tour de France took another twist on the Col du Tourmalet and Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau were there to witness the stage and record their thoughts as the race unfolded. The first big question asked of Julian Alaphilippe, the race leader, was whether he would cope on the first hors categorie mountain of the Tour, and the first time this race has gone above 2,000 metres...

episode 102: Stage 13 | Pau – Pau | Tour de France 2019


The Tour de France continues to intrigue and, with just over a week to go, the question of who is going to win the race is yet to be answered. Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau at their hillside retreat close to Pau where they reflect on the only individual time trial stage of the Tour. We expected Julian Alaphilippe to still be in yellow tonight but few thought he would win the stage and extend his lead. We ask what this means for the Tour now...

episode 99: Fuglsang | Kilometre 0


One of the stories of the season has been Jakob Fuglsang’s transformation from nearly man to winner. His crowning glory came at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, which the Dane won alone, but he has been, along with Julian Alaphilippe, the most consistent rider of 2019...

episode 94: Stage 10 | Saint-Flour – Albi | Tour de France 2019


With the rest day just 24 hours away, the peloton could have been forgiven for wanting a quiet day. No such luck for them because crosswinds in the final couple of hours of racing caused chaos and left several riders counting the cost of being caught out.
