In the latest edition of the Cyclingnews podcast brought to you by Sportful, Pinarello and Floyds of Leadville we look back at another blockbuster at the Tour de France after seeing Simon Yates win stage 15 and Thibaut Pinot put time into all of his GC rivals. 
For the first time in this year’s race Julian Alaphilippe looked vulnerable as the Tour reached its final summit finish in the Pyrenees. The Frenchman still has over a minute on Geraint Thomas, who in turn looked better than he did on stage 14 but still lost time to his teammate Egan Bernal.
Emanuel Buchmann has now emerged as a podium contender, while the dynamic between all three of Movistar’s leaders looks set to entertain us all the way to Paris.
Don’t forget you can win a signed EF-Education First jersey from this year’s Tour de France. To be in with a chance just subscribe to our podcast on Itunesor Podbean. We’ll pick a winner later in the race.
