Tour Daily Podcast: Pre-Tour horror stories and a Giro Rosa preview
Welcome to the first Tour Daily episode of the CyclingTips Podcast. These daily episodes will run in the hours after each stage from today until the end of the 2019 Tour de France.
In this episode, Caley Fretz is joined by Rupert Guinness at the grand depart in Brussels, Belgium. Guinness, a veteran of 31 Tours, tells stories of pre-Tour prep gone wrong, from Stephen Roche’s ill-timed bathroom break to Pedro Delgado’s missed prologue, and the effect that had on one of the greatest Tours ever.
Next, Abby Mickey calls in for a wrapup of the first stage of the Giro Rosa, and a look ahead at the stages to come. We also hear from newly-crowned US champion Ruth Winder, who is sending in diaries throughout the week from the Giro.
