We are slap bang in the middle of the Tour de France and there are plenty of things to talk about.

James and Joe start off by looking at the plight of Thibaut Pinot. For another year, the Groupama-FDJ man saw his hopes of yellow fade up the side of a mountain as his body failed him yet again. Are the French cursed in their quest for a first Tour title since Bernard Hinault in 1985 or are their riders simply not good enough?

As James mentions, Joe also wrote about this in further detail and that article can be found here.

We are then joined by Cyclist columnist and Eurosport man-in-the-know Felix Lowe to talk through the first week of the Tour, the rapid rise of Slovenian PogRog and which professional rider would make the best James Bond. Hint, it's Tom Dumoulin.

There's also some obligatory chat about tyre pressures, expensive chain lube and the time Joe and James saw Fabian Cancellara almost get run over in Richmond Park.
