Tour de France 2021 Stage 7: Matej The Magnificent!

ITV Cycling Podcast

Jul 2 2021 • 29 mins

What to say about today, aside from the fact that Slovenian powerhouse Matej Mohoric joined a relatively elite club of riders to have won a stage at all three of the Grand Tours, with a supremely accomplished ride as he 'cantered' to victory in Le Creusot? Well done, Matej! That's what we'll say. Mathieu van der Poel retained the Yellow Jersey, but has never climbed a mountain in earnest during a race, according to the lads, so best of luck to him as the Alps present themselves like a set of gnarly teeth (if that's incorrect, Ned says he's willing to get up really, really early to stand corrected, so please do bombard him on all of his social channels if it is indeed an inaccuracy, and our Mathieu does, in fact, love steep hills). The aforementioned Boulting, David Millar and Matt Rendell are joined by Chris Boardman to reflect. Meanwhile, we're back on ITV4 for Stage 8!
