135: Tour de France stage 19: Bourg-en-Bresse – Champagnole
In this episode of The Cycling Podcast from the Tour de France, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau are enjoying an early glass of Champagne and a game of table tennis before recapping stage 19.
They discuss another stage win for Sunweb and the tactics that led to it, then hear from yesterday’s stage winner Michal Kwiatkowski before looking ahead to tomorrow’s time trial to the Planche des Belles Filles and in particular the equipment choices the riders face.
