The i newsletter cut through the noise

Froome talks to YEP cycling correspondent Pete Smith about his form and first impressions of Yorkshire, before Pete tells us how gracious a guy the favourite to win this year’s race was.

Pete also joins us to look at the yellow jersey contenders out to thwart Froome, and we go double Dutch, as we hear from Giant Shimano coach Rudi Kemna and Belkin sport director Merijn Zeeman on what the respective teams got out of the reconnaissance visits to Yorkshire.

Nick Westby hosts TourTalk, from the Yorkshire Post and associated Johnston Press titles.
