In the latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you by Sportful, Pinarello and Floyd's of Leadville, we look back at Julian Alaphilippe's stunning victory in the stage 13 Pau time trial at the Tour de France. The Deceuninck-QuickStep Frenchman won ahead of Geraint Thomas (Team Ineos) and Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) and now leads Thomas by 1:26 ahead of the two key mountain stages.
Coming up, we'll hear from Thomas and John Allert from McLaren on the bizarre situation involving Rohan Dennis after the Australian quit the race on stage 12. We ponder whether this is the end for Dennis at Bahrain-Merida, and just how far Alaphilippe can go in the maillot jaune.
Don't forget you can win a signed EF Education First jersey from this year's Tour de France. To be in with a chance just subscribe to our podcast on iTunes or Podbean. We'll pick a winner later in the race.
