CyclingTips Podcast, Episode 7: 2016 Tour de France, first rest day
In this second podcast from the 2016 Tour de France, recorded on the race’s first rest day, our team on the ground — Matt de Neef, Shane Stokes and Dave Everett — discuss the many storylines to have developed over the first nine days of racing.
Among them: Chris Froome’s incident with a spectator, followed by his audacious downhill attack and stage win; Alberto Contador’s unceremonious exit from the race; Dan Martin’s impressive riding at the top of the general classification; the return of Mark Cavendish as the king of the field sprints; the phenom that is Peter Sagan; and the breakout ride from Adam Yates.
And since they’re not at the race, Elden and U.S. Editor Neal Rogers must settle for the next-best thing — interrupting the recorded podcast from the boys in France to share their own opinions and get the last word on every topic.
We hope you enjoy this episode.
