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

It is Sky vs. Sky after 12 stages of racing in the Tour de France. Geraint Thomas is in yellow, but will he work for team leader Chris Froome? We discuss after three exciting stages in the Alps.

Then we hear from Tom Dumoulin and his Sunweb team director Luke Roberts about how they plan to beat the two-headed monster that is Thomas and Froome.

Plus, Ian Boswell checks in atop Alpe d’Huez to talk about the ambiance in his Tour de France debut.

ROKA makes unbelievably lightweight cycling eyewear that seems to have accounted for every little detail necessary for performance on the biggest stages. (Trust us — we’ve logged hundreds of miles in them and are still surprised by how light they are and how secure the fit is.) Check out ROKA.com for more >>
