There were laughs, there were tears, there was cheering, there were kisses. It was the last week of the 2019 Tour de France and it had everything you could possibly want. And we’ve got a very poignant, tear-jerking Twitter clips of Egan Bernal, Julian Alaphilippe, Thibaut Pinot, plus loads of wonderful memories. Thank you to everyone who has made this year’s Tour Tweets of the Week so much fun to put together!
Kathi, Luke, Midge and Euan look back at the 2019 Tour de France with the help of the mystical VeloVoices bidon.
- Which team causes Midge to wax lyrical (when she can stop laughing!)
- Which team uses a Magic 8 Ball to work out their tactics?
- Which team is Luke in a bad mood with?
- And which team does Kathi refuse to even discuss?
This podcast does feature some extended sequences of laughter which may cause listeners of a grouchy nature some unpleasantness.
Phew. The 2019 Tour de France has concluded, and what a race it has been! It has been a roller coaster of excitement, tears, and everything else in between. It has been the best Tour de France edition that many of us have ever witnessed.
As in customary, the race concluded in Paris with a sprint on the Champs-Élysées. In what has long been considered the World Championship for sprinters, Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) was the final rider to raise his hands in victory at this year’s race. It marks three stage wins for the Tour debutant. The general classification remained unchanged as the peloton coasted along drinking champagne in a congratulatory mood. 22-year-old Egan Bernal (INEOS) has made history as the youngest rider to take home yellow in a century and the first Colombian to win the overall.
