The second part of our Grand Tour Diaries audiobook covers one of the most dramatic editions of the Tour de France there’s been for years.

Relive the race and return, in your imagination at least, to last July through the audio diaries of Lionel Birnie, François Thomazeau and Richard Moore.

It was a Tour of heroism and hailstones, cassoulet and champagne, eels in green sauce and Egan (Bernal). We take you back to the the drama of a Tour that looked for a long time like it might crown the first French winner since before François made his reporting debut. Of course there were dashed hopes for Julian Alaphilippe and heartbreak for Thibaut Pinot and ultimately more delight for Team Ineos (previously Team Sky).
