In the latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast we look back at stage 6 of the Critérium du Dauphiné. Julian Alaphilippe came out on top after winning from the early break and Philippa York gives her expert analysis on the Frenchman and who he compares to from the last two decades.
We also hear from Dave Brailsford on the shock news that Juan Jose Cobo may be stripped of his 2011 Vuelta a España. Such a move would make Chris Froome the overall winner and as such the first British rider to win a Grand Tour.
With the Dauphiné about to reach the mountains and the first real test since the time trial we also hear from Richie Porte and Steven Kruijswijk.
