VN podcast, ep. 55: Tour de France? Tour de Ambush!

Welcome to the VeloNews cycling podcast, where we discuss the latest trends, news, and controversies in the world of cycling.

The Tour de France unveils its 2018 route. We’ve got to hand it to ASO for thinking outside the box. This could be the route that breaks Chris Froome and Team Sky. Or, it might be just a gimmicky way to include Roubaix cobblestones. Fred Dreier, Spencer Powlison, and Andrew Hood analyze the key stages, name some favorites and opine on the Tour’s ambush-friendly route.

In our segments, you #AskACat3 and we answer with all of our usual wisdom. Then, we pick our VN Podiums for the all-time best Tour de France villains.
