The podcast takes a closer look at the route of the Tour de France and the many stars hunting results in cycling's biggest race.

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

The main event of the pro cycling season is fast approaching. With just three days left to the start of the 2018 Tour de France, it’s a perfect time to take a closer look at the race.

Can anyone dethrone four-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome? Which of the sprinters will reign supreme? Will green jersey hopeful Peter Sagan find the route to his liking?

We “recon” the route — and it’s a good one — and the many stars set to make the start in the French grand tour.
