Kathi, Midge, Luke and Euan fire up Tour de France mission control at VeloVoices Towers and pull apart a cracking week of racing. We look at Pog v Jonas, who’s the best and what they heck are their tactics all about? Are Ineos a new brighter presence in the peloton or a second rate Movistar? A cunning plan to get David Gaudu onto the podium and an in-depth retrospective of Rui Costa‘s last Tour de France win.
Kathi, Midge,, and Euan gather round the table to pull apart the first full week of the 2023 Tour de France. It’s been a ding-dong battle at the top of the GC race with thrills and swings aplenty. They discuss:
Who wins between Pog and Jonas?
Do their teams understand tactics?
Mark Cavendish‘s sad goodbye to the Tour
We sing the praises of the fast men AND the riders who just stop!
Plus Midge wants a word with the UCI about motor racing circuits, Kathi waxes lyrical about her beloved Wout van Aert and Euan notices one team that seemingly isn’t trying.
