Rouleur Conversations – Tour de France Preview and new technology with Team DSM
It's nearly July and for cycling fans that means only one thing - days glued to screens, or standing at the roadside, as the greatest sporting show on earth rolls through the French countryside. And, this year, Denmark. Rouleur editor Ed Pickering and veteran Tour photojournalist James Startt look ahead to the Copenhagen Grand Depart. Team DSM's technical wizard Piet Rooijakkers tells us how he manages the technology and tactics for 500 races each year and how he works with Shimano on the company's latest innovations. Australian journalist Sophie Smith, author of new book 'Pain and Privilege', talks about her 'addiction' to the Tour, and 'fat shaming' in the pro peloton.
Can anyone beat Pogačar and Roglič? It's the Tour - anything can happen.
