The Cycling Podcast visited Dave Brailsford at his personal motorhome parked outside Team Sky’s hotel towards the end of the first week of the Tour de France.

After speaking to the boss of Team Sky, Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie met Chris Froome in the team’s mobile kitchen-diner to ask for his assessment of the opening week of the race.
