The latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast looks back at the last few days of the Tour de France in the Alps, as we hear from Mikel Landa, Julian Alaphilippe, Richie Porte and Adam Yates.

The latest racing has seen Ineos Grenadiers' Michal Kwiatkowski and Astana's Miguel Angel Lopez win stages, while the race for the yellow jersey is almost over, with Jumbo-Visma's Primoz Roglic looking almost unbreakable.

We analyse the winners and losers from the Alps, and also compare the might of Jumbo-Visma with the strongest editions of Team Sky and Ineos from the last few years.

There's also an in-depth discussion on how Sunweb have come away with a Tour stacked with highlights, and discussions over Trek-Segafredo climber Richie Porte's Grand Tour career.

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.
