June 23 | In this, the first Tour de France podcast with HumansInvent.com and Sharp, journalists Richard Moore, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie look ahead to the 100th edition of the race.

Before the Grand Départ in Corsica on June 29, we tackle the issue of Sir Bradley Wiggins’s absence and how it will affect Chris Froome and the rest of the Sky team. The fact Wiggins is not on the start line to defend his title means that the rolling soap opera over internal team politics has been avoided, but what does it mean for Froome now?

Our three journalists predict which riders will finish on the podium in Paris in three weeks’ time and look at some of the other riders who will be making a name for themselves this summer.

Then they take a look at the challenge that lies ahead of the riders, picking out some of the key stages and whetting your appetite for this year’s Tour.
