For Thursday's stage 5 time trial, we've got a special interview with the Haute Route race director. He explains how he balances famous cols with lesser-known mountains. Plus we ask him about the difficulties involved in wrangling 800 volunteers throughout the French mountains.
What's this special podcast mini-series all about? Spencer Powlison is off in France doing this seven-day sportive with his friend Matt Mollo. Along the way, they'll discuss the history of these big climbs and the delicious wines of the region. Don't worry, as a wine importer, Matt's an expert on natural wines... Spencer will stick to cycling (and drinking the wine).
