Tour de France organisers ASO invited friends, colleagues and acquaintances of Richard Moore to gather at the stage 5 start in Lille and pay tribute to the late author, journalist, and broadcaster.

Moore, a renowned journalist and co-creator of The Cycling Podcast, died suddenly at his home in Northern France on March 28 this year, aged just 48.
