After a less-than-impressive McDonalds in Albertville, Brad and Matt sit down at a hotel to discuss an eventful Stage 10, just metres away from a flip-flop wearing Wout van Aert. It was Magnus Cort Nielsen who secured a very richly-deserved victory, but did Tadej Pogacar try, and fail, to lose the yellow jersey? It was also a day of non-sporting headlines. First, as Covid returned to haunt the peloton with Pogacar losing key team-mate George Bennett. And second, as climate change protesters forced a halt to the race. Brad was on the scene on the bike and reflects on what he saw. Finally, w ..read more

It's a rest day at the Tour de France and Brad is joined by Matt and Bernie ahead of Stage 10 on Monday. The gang review the first full week of the Tour, and the first topic of discussion is race leader Tadej Pogacar - who, despite being a two-time winner, Brad believes doesn't fully use the strength and power that having the yellow jersey confers. Brad says the young Slovenian "doesn't realise his status in the sport" and reflects on his own experiences when leading the greatest race in the world in 2012, and the power attached to the famous jersey in terms of dictating the terms of the rac ..read more

After a breathless and nervy Stage 5 of the Tour de France, which witnessed carnage on the cobbles, Brad and Matt catch up while driving past the iconic Arenberg. Simon Clarke took a tremendous win but the real story of the day was a succession of major incidents involving big-name riders. Jack Haig was forced to withdraw, Primoz Roglic dislocated his shoulder and had to pop it back in - and that was after yellow jersey Wout van Aert had crashed and then almost hit a car when trying to rejoin the group. All in all it was a disastrous day for Jumbo-Visma, as Roglic conceded almost two minute ..read more
