84: Stage 4 | Reims – Nancy | Tour de France 2019
Listen now
Description
From Champagne to quiche Lorraine, the Tour de France continues its journey, although the same team was celebrating again today. Elia Viviani followed his Deceuninck-Quick Step team-mate Julian Alaphilippe by winning the stage in Nancy. We discuss the sprint finish and dissect the tactics on the run-in to the line before hearing from Alexandre Kristoff’s lead-out man, and the youngest rider in the race, Jasper Philipsen in the latest edition of Outside the Team Bus. We also speak to Mike Teunissen, who spent two days in the yellow jersey but has returned to his regular Jumbo-Visma colours – coincidentally also yellow. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science In Sport.
