It’s Sunday evening and the Tour de France heads into its second rest-day with the race pausing in Carcassonne until Tuesday morning. The last two stages have been decided by breaks, with Astana winning on both occasions. Behind the stage honors lies the delicate battle for the GC with Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome sitting ahead of Tom Dumoulin.
In the latest Cyclingnews podcast we hear from both Team Sky riders on the environment they’ve faced at the race with pockets of fans booing the yellow jersey and his team. We also hear from Tom Southam on how EF Education First are hoping to bounce back from losing Rigoberto Uran – their hope for the overall standings.
And we also hear from former footballer Frank de Boer, who is at the race for Dutch television. De Boer talks about the Ajax philosophy, entertaining football and if the same ethos can be transferred to cycling.
