Latest on Dennis' future as Alaphilippe stuns the Tour de France – Podcast

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.

Cyclingnews

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
