The Tour de France’s final Alpine stage was cut short because of landslides but at last the identity of the 2019 champion is known – awaiting only final confirmation on the Champs-Élysées tomorrow.

Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau in Val Thorens to recap the penultimate stage of a most enthralling race. They discuss the stage win by Vincenzo Nibali and anticipate the overall victory for Egan Bernal. It will be Colombia’s first Tour de France victory and we discuss what the future holds for Bernal and Team Ineos. We also hear from their head of athlete performance, Tim Kerrison.

Plus hear from Julian Alaphilippe’s teammate Yves Lampaert, Katusha’s Marco Haller and Wanty-Groupe Gobert’s Xandro Meurisse.

Next up, Paris.
