After travelling from Bristol to Belfast and reaching London on Monday night, The Cycling Podcast’s Grand Tour has reached its halfway point.

Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the week’s news – double Tour de France stage winner Steve Cummings’ retirement, the latest from Dr Richard Freeman’s General Medical Council hearing and we hear from Matt White about how he sits down to plan the race programme for Mitchelton-Scott’s riders.

The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science In Sport.
