In the third episode of The VeloNews Cycling Podcast, Andy Hood and Matt Beaudin join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe in the beautiful medieval city of Carcassonne as the second rest day draws to a close.

They assess the race so far, ask how strong Vincenzo Nibali’s performance has been, rate Tejay Van Garderen’s chances of making it onto the podium in Paris and look ahead to the Pyrenees. We also hear from Van Garderen’s BMC support rider, Peter Stetina.
