July 22, 2019

The latest episode of the Cyclingews podcast is now out and brings you all the latest from the Tour de France press conferences in Nimes. We have the complete lowdown from a number of team press conferences including QuickStep, Team Ineos, Groupama FDJ, Movistar, and some Mitchelton Scott thrown in for good measure.

 We hear from the race leader himself Julian Alaphilippe, Dave Brailsford, Geraint Thomas and Adam Yates as the race takes a break before heading into the final week and the deciding states of this year’s race.

 Thomas talks about leadership and Team Ineos, Egan Bernal and the French threat from Thibaut Pinot and Julian Alaphilippe. We also hear from the QuickStep rider and debate whether Patrick Lefevere should build a GC team around the rider in the next few years.

 Dave Brailsford talks Tour tactics and Adam Yates opens up about his Tour disappointment and how he’s going to bounce back in the future.
