S8 Ep94: 2020 Tour de France preview

The Cycling Podcast

With the Grand Départ in Nice just a few days away, the countdown to the start of the 2020 Tour de France is on. It will be a Tour like no other and in this episode, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe look forward to the race. We weigh up the Ineos Grenadiers team selection, which saw Chris Froome's bid for a fifth Tour victory put on hold and Geraint Thomas also left out. Ineos will still go into the race with the reigning Tour de France and Giro d'Italia champions, Egan Bernal and Richard Carapaz. There's a look at the route, which appears to be full of semi-hidden traps to punish a moment's inattention. And we hear from Marianne Vos about La Course, which will be held on Saturday morning, NTT Pro Cycling's boss Doug Ryder about being the first to confirm their eight-man line up for the Tour, Britain's Tour debutant Connor Swift about lining up alongside Nairo Quintana and Larry Warbasse on his recent positive test for coronavirus. OUR TOUR DE FRANCE COVERAGE Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau on the road in France for nightly episodes recapping the day's stage and big stories. Kilometre 0 will air every weekday morning (Monday to Friday).
