VeloVoices Podcast 198: It all comes down to the salt

Kathi, Luke, Midge, Issie, Chris and Euan join hands across the ocean to talk about a remarkable second week of the 2022 Tour de France.

  • Is Tadej Pogacar off the boil or does he have more to give?
  • Can Geraint Thomas and Romain Bardet get a result by stealth?

Midge pays tribute to an awesome week for her great Danes, Issie has some praise for an old favourite, Luke tries to get everyone excited about EF and Chris has some hot takes on Jonas.
