Stage 6: Vintage Greipel wins in Champagne country
After the madness of the cobbles, the Tour de France returned to (almost) normal with a victory for a big German sprinter. But it wasn’t Marcel Kittel this time but his compatriot Andre Greipel of Lotto-Belisol who won the sixth stage in Reims.
In this edition of The Telegraph Cycling Podcast, supported by Jaguar, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe reflect on the stage and where Chris Froome’s withdrawal leaves Team Sky. We hear from Wednesday’s winner Lars Boom, Sky’s Geraint Thomas, Norwegian sprinter Alexander Kristoff, who comments on his verbal spat with Mark Cavendish, and Aussie debutant Mat Hayman.
There’s also the highlights of our extensive interview with UCI president Brian Cookson, the full edition of which you can hear in a separate podcast.
