While speaking to several pros about the race I snuck in some cheeky Talking Luft questions, which were a bit of a curveball for some of them but great fun hearing their answers.
This episode is packed full of riders at the race as I hear about cap style, favourite beverages, post race rituals, crosswinds v. mountains, race food, favourite riders, the best and worst parts of a race, how to wear kit, coffee, cheat meals & so much more.
I chat to: Mads Pedersen (Trek Segafredo), Marco Haller (Bora Hansgrohe), Matteo Jorgenson (Movistar), Nick Schultz (Team Bike Exchange), Pierre Rolland (B&B Hotels), Adam Yates (Team Ineos), Taco Van der Hoorn (Intermarché-Wanty), Connor Swift (Arkéa-Samsic), Michael Mørkøv (QuickStep Alpha-Vinyl), Mike Woods (Israel Premier-Tech), Toms Skujinš (Trek Segafredo), George Bennett (UAE Team Emirates), Neilson Powless (EF Education First) & John Degenkolb (Team DSM).
This was a good bit of fun to have with the riders and I hope you enjoy the listen.
And of course enjoy the final week of watching the men’s Tour de France! I’ve got a great Tour de France Femmes episode coming up for you next week.
