Roglic rises as cracks appear in rivals’ GC challenges – podcast

It the end of stage of the 4 of the Tour de France and we have a feast of Tour content in our latest edition of the Cyclingnews podcast, as we hear from Egan Bernal, Sepp Kuss, and Tim Declercq. We’ll also discuss the latest transfer news after Michael Matthews broke his contract with Team Sunweb to join Mitchelton-Scott.

Daniel Benson and Ed Pickering dissect the action from stage 4 after Primoz Roglic won ahead of Tadej Pogacar and Guillaume Martin with 16 riders finishing in the front group on the first summit finish of this year’s race. Overall leader Julian Alaphilippe took 5th and held onto his yellow jersey with Adam Yates at 4 seconds, and Roglic at 7 seconds.


We hear from Bernal on the battle for yellow, and Roglic’s star teammate, Kuss, who drove the pace of the leading group in the final few kilometers. We also discuss some of the time gaps for Emanuel Buchmann and Rirchard Carapaz, before turning out attention to Tim Declercq, who once more selflessly controlled the pace of the peloton for much of the stage.


Finally, we debate the pros and cons around Matthews’ surprise move to Mitchelton Scott.
