CyclingTips Tour de France Vlog, Episode 3: The ‘calm’ before the storm

Don’t miss out on the latest CyclingTips updates.

TROYES, France (CT) – Episode three of our Tour de France vlog is here. The race is less than a week old and it’s already seen more controversy than we care to remember. The three of us on the ground, Matt, Shane and Dave, have been in amongst the action.

In this episode we cover the days in the build up to an eventful stage 4. No matter if there’s a crash, a win or a rider who may wish he was drinking beer (more of that in the video), the Tour never disappoints. It also never ceases to amaze, confuse and have us running around trying to grab the right riders at the right time. In the haze of a thunderingly fast finish, it’s always a challenge to piece together the puzzle of what happened.

We hope you enjoy!
