Stage 11 | Eymet / Pau | Tour de France 2017

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau review stage 11, which was a flat and fairly predictable run south from Eymet to Pau.

But don’t let the lack of action in the Tour de France put you off listening to the podcast because we have a packed, varied show with plenty of talking points.

We discuss the stage, which was won by Marcel Kittel – his fifth of the race – and speculate about how many more he might win. Can he equal the record of eight held by Charles Pélissier, Eddy Merckx and Freddy Maertens?

There’s also a chat with Matt White about the lack of race action, Lionel makes a trip to the Tour de France barber (no laughing at the back!) and there’s a focus on Tom Simpson. Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of Simpson’s death on Mont Ventoux (which the race is not visiting this year) and so we hear from three authors who have written books about Simpson and Ventoux – William Fotheringham, Jeremy Whittle and Andy McGrath.
