Daniel Friebe, Richard Moore and Julien Prétot discuss the action

The final and arguably most stunning day in Corsica saw the riders head up the coast from Ajaccio to the northern town of Calvi.

And what a coastline it was, skirting beautiful sandy beaches and sapphire seas, but the roads were brutal — twisting and up and down — and it was another enthralling stage.

 

On the latest Humans Invent Tour de France podcast Daniel Friebe, Richard Moore and Julien Prétot, a French journalist with Reuters, discuss the day’s action, reflect on the Corsican experience, and look ahead to Tuesday’s team time trial back on the mainland in Nice.

We also have a couple of interviews, with Rolf Aldag and David Millar.

At the start in Ajaccio Daniel spoke to Aldag, technical director of the Omega Pharma-Quick-step team, about the team time trial and how they might be affected by the injuries to world time trial champion Tony Martin, who would usually be the team’s powerhouse.

Aldag speaks about the equipment the team will use for the team time trial — and reveals tonstrous gear Martin likes to use.

We also have a short interview with Millar of Garmin-Sharp, who was second overall going into Monday’s stage, just a second behind Jan Bakelants. Millar slipped to seventh after stage three, still just a second behind Bakelants, and with a chance of taking yellow on Tuesday.
