Tour de France team analysis with Philippa York

June 28, 2018

In this week’s episode of the Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you in association with Prendas Ciclismo, Pinarello and Floyds of Leadville, we sit down at go through a number of the squads that have been announced ahead of next week’s Tour de France.

 With special guest Philippa York joining Ed Pickering and Daniel Benson in the studio, we look at key selections for the likes of BMC Racing, Movistar and Ag2R La Mondiale – all of which have named strong and dynamic teams for this 2018 edition of the race.

 We also pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of several other teams, such as Vincenzo Nibali’s Bahrain Merida and Jakob Fuglsang’s Astana squad.

And although Team Sky are yet to announce their eight-man line up to defend Chris Froome’s title we look through a number of the possible inclusions and debate whether any weaknesses exist within the British team’s camp.
