    ‘Superhuman’ Pidcock can win Tour one day | Froome still world class

    ‘Superhuman’ Pidcock can win Tour one day | Froome still world class

    Bradley Wiggins and Matt Stephens return to discuss Stage 12 of the Tour de France on the latest episode of the Bradley Wiggins Show.
    There’s praise for Tom Pidcock whose “almost superhuman” performance left Matt on the verge of tears after he became the youngest ever winner on Alpe d’Huez. 
    The 22-year-old became the second British winner – after Geraint Thomas - on the iconic col and Wiggins has tipped the Yorkshireman as a winner of the Tour de France in the future. The 2012 winner thinks that the Tour de France suits him best of all the Grand Tours. 
    There is also praise for the new environment on show at his team Ineos under the guidance of Steve Cummings and Rod Ellingworth.  
    Arguably, though, the story of the day was Chris Froome’s return to form with a third-placed finish. Wiggins says it is testament to his resilience and perseverance to return to world-class form following three years of rehabilitation.

    The moment the Tour completely changed | In praise of Jumbo's masterplan

    The moment the Tour completely changed | In praise of Jumbo's masterplan

    In the latest episode of the Tour de France Bradley Wiggins and Matt Stephens look back on a chaotic day at the Tour de France, was this the stage where the Tour completely changed?
    There's praise for Jumbo-Visma, who executed "one of the best tactical plans" we've seen at the Tour in recent years. Can Jonas Vingegaard hold on to yellow or will we maybe see a response from the two-time defending champion Tadej Pogacar?
    Stay tuned throughout the show to hear from a couple of special podcast guests, as they drop in and give us their thoughts on the day's racing.
    Plus why Wout van Aert reminds us of our colleague Sean Kelly, and do we need to have a "Oldest Rider of the Tour" jersey?

    Protests and Covid hit Tour | What does future hold for Cav?

    Protests and Covid hit Tour | What does future hold for Cav?

    After a less-than-impressive McDonalds in Albertville, Brad and Matt sit down at a hotel to discuss an eventful Stage 10, just metres away from a flip-flop wearing Wout van Aert.
    It was Magnus Cort Nielsen who secured a very richly-deserved victory, but did Tadej Pogacar try, and fail, to lose the yellow jersey?
    It was also a day of non-sporting headlines. First, as Covid returned to haunt the peloton with Pogacar losing key team-mate George Bennett.
    And second, as climate change protesters forced a halt to the race. Brad was on the scene on the bike and reflects on what he saw.
    Finally, we look ahead to a “big, big day” on Wednesday with the Galibier awaiting the riders, and Brad and Matt discuss what Mark Cavendish’s options could be after Patrick Lefevere let slip he will be leaving at the end of the season….

    Pogacar 'doesn't use strength of yellow jersey' | Why second week suits G

    Pogacar 'doesn't use strength of yellow jersey' | Why second week suits G

    It's a rest day at the Tour de France and Brad is joined by Matt and Bernie ahead of Stage 10 on Monday.
    The gang review the first full week of the Tour, and the first topic of discussion is race leader Tadej Pogacar - who, despite being a two-time winner, Brad believes doesn't fully use the strength and power that having the yellow jersey confers.
    Brad says the young Slovenian "doesn't realise his status in the sport" and reflects on his own experiences when leading the greatest race in the world in 2012, and the power attached to the famous jersey in terms of dictating the terms of the race.
    Brad also says Pogacar arguably lacks the road captains to make the difference, recalling the time that Michael Rogers took a decision on his behalf in 2012 to ensure Team Sky abandoned a chase of a breakaway in order to focus on GC, a decision which did not amuse Mark Cavendish...
    Geraint Thomas is still nicely placed in GC and Bernie says the projected hot temperatures over the next week could favour G, having kept his powder dry thus far. Brad says he's never seen his former team-mate so relaxed.
    There's discussions on Tom Pidcock, Primoz Roglic and predictions on what is still to come. And the three discuss the moments watching the Tour as a child which made them want to be a professional cyclist.

    ‘Pogacar fears him’ - Jonas Vingegaard earns respect of Tour leader on Super Planche

    ‘Pogacar fears him’ - Jonas Vingegaard earns respect of Tour leader on Super Planche

    Tadej Pogacar may have ripped to a second straight win at the Tour de France on Stage 7, but the late burst from Jonas Vingegaard means we could yet have a GC battle after all. Brad and Matt dissect a thrilling finale and wonder whether the Slovenian sensation is afraid of the altitude-loving Dane. Oh, and in an ode to their favourite yogurt, Brad and Matt also coin the first draft of their Yop Song…
