Stage 4 | Escaldes-Engordany / Tarragona | Vuelta a España 2017

8/22/2017
More
The Vuelta a España reached Spanish soil after it’s opening few days in France and Andorra, and although there are few seasoned sprinters in the race, the peloton nevertheless brought everything back together in time for the finish. And it was the Italian Matteo Trentin who succeeded in giving Quick Step their second stage win of the race. They had hoped to lead him out for victory in Gruissan a couple of days ago but his team-mate Yves Lampaert took a flyer and ended up winning. Richard...

Stage 3 | Prades Conflent Canigó / Andorra la Vella | Vuelta a España 2017

8/21/2017
More
The Vuelta a España headed from France into Andorra and the first serious climbs of the race. And it was no surprise to see a former Vuelta champion and the pre-race favourite right at the head of affairs. In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe are joined by Spanish journalist Fran Reyes to discuss stage three of the race. The stage was won by Vincenzo Nibali, the 2010 Vuelta champion, but it was Chris Froome of Team Sky who applied all the...

Stage 2 | Nîmes / Gruissan | Vuelta a España 2017

8/20/2017
More
The wind blew across the south of France but the Vuelta a España peloton did not split although there was a change of race leadership at the finish in Gruissan. Although there were no breakaways, it was still a tense, nervous day in the peloton as no one wanted to get caught out if gaps started to open in the bunch. In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie are joined by Spanish journalist Fran Reyes to review the racing, which resulted in a one-two for Quick...

8/19/2017

The Vuelta a España started in Nîmes in the south of France with a spectacular team time trial that took the riders through the Roman amphitheatre in the centre of the town. BMC Racing won the stage and put their Australian rider Rohan Dennis into the first red jersey of the race.

20. Post-Tour racing and the transfer window

8/1/2017

August 1 | In this, our first episode since the end of the Tour de France, Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie are reunited with Daniel Friebe to discuss a busy week of racing. The San Sebastian Classic was won by Michal Kwiatkowski, one of Sky's Tour de France stars. The Pole added the Basque race to Strade Bianche and Milan-San Remo, which he won in the spring. At the Ride London-Surrey Classic, Alexandre Kristoff made up for failing to win a Tour stage after a strong sprint in The Mall. And,...

The Cycling Podcast Féminin | Episode 14

7/24/2017
More
This episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin comes from the summit of the Col d'Izoard and the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille as Richard Moore, Orla Chennaoui and Lionel Birnie cover La Course. But was the innovative two-day format an improvement on the circuit race on the Champs-Élysées? We hear from the riders, including Ashleigh Moolman Pasio, Lizzie Deignan, Megan Guarnier and the winner of both the mountain stage and the 'chase' time trial, Annemiek Van Vleuten.

Stage 21 | Montgeron / Paris Champs-Élysées | Tour de France 2017

7/23/2017
More
The Cycling Podcast’s coverage of the 2017 Tour de France concludes with Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau picking their individual highlights of the race. We also canvass the opinions of some of the riders and perhaps are not surprised that many of them cite reaching the Champs-Élysées as the high point of their race. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science in Sport.

Stage 20 | Marseille / Marseille | Tour de France 2017

7/22/2017
More
The 20th stage of the Tour de France was the long-awaited time trial in Marseille, starting and finishing in the Stade Velodrome, home of Olympique Marseille. With three riders so close overall, everything was up for grabs, in theory, although Chris Froome’s superiority in the time trials meant that his yellow jersey was never likely to be threatened. But second and third overall did swap places because Rigoberto Uran, the Colombian rider with Cannondale-Drapac, put in a fine performance to...

Stage 19 | Embrun / Salon-de-Provence | Tour de France 2017

7/21/2017
More
After the Alps and before the time trial in Marseille, the Tour de France had a long transitional stage into the heart of Provence. Had the wind blown it might have been a very interesting day but as it turned out it was the first stage of the race when the breakaway riders had a chance to fight it out among themselves. And in the end it was a roundabout that proved decisive. Just inside the last three kilometres, Edvald Boasson Hagen and Nikias Arndt went the right-hand side of the...

In our final episode of Kilometre 0 of the 2017 Tour de France, we look back at the very first race in 1903 with Peter Cossins, the author of Butcher, Blacksmith, Acrobat, Sweep.

Stage 18 | Briançon / Col d’Izoard | Tour de France 2017

7/20/2017
More
In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau are joined by Orla Chennaoui to discuss the 18th stage from Briançon to the Col d’Izoard. It was billed as the decisive mountain stage of the Tour but Romain Bardet and the rest were unable to unseat Chris Froome and so the Team Sky rider appears to be the favourite to win his fourth Tour title in five years (assuming nothing unforeseen happens in Saturday’s time trial). But the star of the day was...

Kilometre 0 – The route master

7/20/2017
More
In this episode of Kilometre 0 we speak to Thierry Gouvenou, the sporting director of the Tour de France, about how the race route is plotted. This year's Tour has visited all five mountain ranges in France – the Jura, the Vosges, the Pyrenees, the Massif Central and the Alps – and has led to one of the closest races of all-time. But what is Gouvenou aiming for when he and his team design the route? We ask him. Kilometre 0 is supported by Nederburg Wines.

7/19/2017
More
In this episode of The Cycling Podcast from the Tour de France, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau report on stage 17, which saw the race head into the Alps with the climb of the biggest mountain on the route, the Col du Galibier. The stage was won by the Slovenian Primoz Roglic, a former ski jumper who descended brilliantly to give Team LottoNL-Jumbo their first victory of the race. We hear from his sports director Nico Verhoeven about how Roglic targeted this specific...

Kilometre 0 – Tour de la Musique

7/19/2017
More
In the 1930s, the Tour de France used to have an official song each year. Almost all of them were absolutely dreadful and it has to be said that although the Tour has inspired plenty of music since, much of it has been little improvement on those early songs. The notable exception is Tour de France by Düsseldorf band Kraftwerk. This episode of Kilometre 0 is inspired by Juke Box Jury as François Thomazeau reveals ten songs that have been inspired by cycling. There's also an appearance by...

Stage 16 | Le Puy-en-Velay / Romans-sur-Isère | Tour de France 2017

7/18/2017
More
During the 16th stage of the Tour de France, the wind blew and caused more than a bit of disruption at the end. In this packed episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau discuss the race as it resumes following the rest day. Michael Matthews of Australia gave Team Sunweb their third stage win in four after some fantastic team-work. But it was not a good day for Quick Step. Marcel Kittel’s hopes of a sixth stage win were ended early in the day when he...

Kilometre 0 – The African Challenge

7/18/2017

In this episode of Kilometre 0 we focus on the African riders who have begun to make an impression on the Tour de France in the past decade. We hear from Doug Ryder, boss of the first African team to ride the Tour, now known as Dimension Data-Qhubeka, Louis Meintjes of UAE-Team Emirates, who finished eighth last year and is high in the overall classification again, and the first Ethiopian to ride the Tour, Tsgabu Grmay.

7/17/2017

This week sees La Course expand its format from a criterium held on the Champs-Elysées in Paris to an innovative two-day format. They will climb the Col d'Izoard on stage one and then will take part in a new time trial format in Marseille, with the riders going off in the order they finished on the mountain. But how will the event be received and what do some of the riders who will be taking part think of it? Kilometre 0 is supported by Nederburg Wines.

Stage 15 | Laissac-Sévérac-l’Eglise / Le Puy-en-Velay | Tour de France 2017

Today’s episode of The Cycling Podcast starts in the car, as journalists Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau drive the course of the 15th stage of the Tour de France from Laissac-Sévérac-l’Eglise to Le Puy-en-Velay. It was a twisty, technical course consisting of narrow, grippy roads and steep climbs. Up front the Dutch rider Bauke Mollema attacked 30 kilometres from the finish to win the stage in impressive style. And behind there was drama when Chris Froome had a problem...
