VeloVoices Podcast 197: ‘Roglic should be banned from all ASO races’ (not really)

Kathi, Luke, Midge, Issie and Euan are here to run through the first full week of the 2022 Tour de France.

We celebrate the racing and the riders, there’s been so much to love this week and we’re here to love it.

From the riders who love to race, to the stages that delighted us, we celebrate it all.

Starring Wout van Aert, Tadej Pogacar, Bob Jungels, Thibaut Pinot, cobbles, hay bales and so much more.

We go through some great questions from Twitter and preview the big stages coming this week.

Obviously it wouldn’t be the VeloVoices podcast if we didn’t stray off piste with detours through rhyming slang, beaches and Mandela Day.

VeloVoices Podcast 196: I Don’t Like Bridges At The Best Of Times

Kathi, Luke, Midge and Euan are here to run through the Grand Depart stages of the 2022 Tour de France.

From horrible helmets, through gilet gaffes to  KC and the Sunshine Band we bring you the good, the bad and the ugly from Denmark

Questions under discussion:

  • Will Kathi ever warm to Yves Lampaert?
  • Is Rigoberto Uran a genuine GC contender?
  • Why do we always fall for the echelons hype?
  • Does Denmark have mountains?

There’s views, debates and laughs along the way. And if you’re on Twitter let us know who we should be following on @Velovoices

Stage 1 review : Yves Lampaert takes a surprise yellow

Stage 2 review : Feel good win for Jakobsen while Wout slips into yellow

Stage 3 review : Groenewegen’s return; Wout stays in yellow


Tour de France 2022: Stage 3 – Groenewegen’s return; Wout stays in yellow

It’s been nearly two years since Fabio Jakobsen and Dylan Groenewegen collided at the Tour of Poland, resulting in a long physical recovery for Jakobsen and a long mental recovery for Groenewegen. Fast forward to the conclusion of this year’s Grand Depart in Denmark and we’ve seen both men return to the top of the sport. Jakobsen blasted off a sprint win in stage 2 yesterday, of course, and Groenewegen took a photo finish win in the sprint today. The Dutchman, who now rides for BikeExchange, narrowly edged out VeloVoices lover boy and yellow jersey wearer, Wout van Aert, while Alpecin’s Jasper Philipsen finished third.

The general classification remains largely unchanged with van Aert stretching his yellow jersey lead to 7sec as the race makes its way to France. In an unfortunate sign of the argy bargy-ness and nerves of the start of the race, the likes of EF’s Rigoberto Uran, and Bahrain’s Damiano Caruso and Jack Haig – as well as many others – lost just under 40 seconds as the result of a crash in the final 10km.
