Tour de France podcast episode 5: Tony Martin’s elation, Froome out of yellow but comfortable

Stage 4 of the Tour de France provided another pulsating day of racing, with Tony Martin winning the stage and taking the overall race lead from Chris Froome (Team Sky) after an action-packed day on the cobbles.

The German came back from a late mechanical and was forced to ride a teammate’s bike before attacking the remnants of the field inside the final few kilometres. After three days of near misses, Martin finally had the win his efforts deserved.
