The Tour de France continues to intrigue and, with just over a week to go, the question of who is going to win the race is yet to be answered.
Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau at their hillside retreat close to Pau where they reflect on the only individual time trial stage of the Tour.
We expected Julian Alaphilippe to still be in yellow tonight but few thought he would win the stage and extend his lead. We ask what this means for the Tour now. Is Geraint Thomas still the favourite to win in Paris? Who were the other winners and losers in the race against the clock.
We recap another absorbing stage, share some behind the scenes gossip and explain why there is no episode of Outside the Team Bus tonight.
