The Rouleur crew have torn themselves away from the television briefly to discuss a fascinating opening week of the Tour.
Can Primož Roglič go all the way to Paris, assuming the race does... Is Marc Hirschi's stupendous stage 9 descent into Laruns one of the best cycling moments we have ever witnessed? And is Sam Bennett a big crybaby or a lovely, lovely guy? (We know the answer, don't @ us)
And Stu even manages to shoehorn Heinrich Haussler into the conversation, cycling's longest running bromance.
