Sadly, his wifi signal was nowhere near as strong as his riding has been lately, and we lost him halfway through the record - but he was on great form before that! Luke enlisted the help of Producer George - hello! - to finish the pod, pick our Chapeau of the Tour, and preview his first ever race as an official Sport Director. Good luck Rowey! We hope you enjoyed our Tour coverage - we certainly enjoyed bringing it to you. We'll be back next week with some Olympic action and to start prepping for the Vuelta. It'll be here before you know it - but no, G definitely won't be riding. Spain's for holidays, remember. See you then. Want to come and see us in November?

Fresh from an hour of alternative commentary on @eurosportcycling's Instagram this afternoon, Luke and Tom hopped on to reflect on that crazy stage - and another remarkable ride from Tadej Pogacar. He didn't take home Continental Tyres' Chapeau of the Day though - you'll have to listen to hear who gets the nod today. Luke's gonna be roadside for stage 20 and can't wait to pick up some goodies from the caravan. If he makes it back off the mountain alive, we'll be back for another pod tomorrow.

We loved seeing G and De Pluski flying the flag in the break - and Laurens battled to a valiant fourth out on the road. G told Tom all about their big day out, picked his Continental Tyres Chapeau of the Day (this could have been controversial) and is starting to count down the days until Sunday, when he'll be home with a G&T in his hand.

No, this is not a drill: we do indeed have actual A-List Hollywood star Ben Stiller on the pod today. How's that for a rest day show? As our listeners will know, Ben's a huge cycling fan, he loves following the Grand Tours, and he's a vocal supporter of G's across social media. He was delighted to accept G's offer to come on the pod and the guys had a great time with the star of Zoolander, Dodgeball, Meet the Parents... the list goes on and on. Luke and G absolutely loved chatting to him about his love for the Tour, how he watches the action from the States, and got plenty of advice from him on our upcoming Watts Occurring live show, on November 8th at the Lowry Theatre in Salford. Will Ben be there? Who knows. You can get your tickets here. G also gave us a typical rest day update and waxed lyrical about Ambassador De Pluski's ride in the breakaway yesterday.

WE'VE BOOKED ANOTHER LIVE SHOW! On November 8th, Watts Occurring is hitting the Lowry Theatre in Salford, Greater Manchester. Get your tickets here. We're back after one of the biggest days of the Tour so far - and another remarkable performance from Tadej Pogacar. This race is showing no signs of slowing down. G's been under the weather, as he explains, but felt better out there today, got over the Tourmalet without too much trouble, and is hoping to come back around. He's got plenty of tales from the road, there's a belting new French nickname for Tom Pidcock, and our Continental Tyres Chapeau of the Day came from the breakaway. You'll have to let us know if you agree with our pick. We'll see you on the rest day - just the small matter of five more categorised climbs to scale tomorrow.

There's also a voice note from G after what he called the easiest Tour stage ever and Luke fires plenty of questions Caleb's way. The Aussie pocket rocket's on great form.

It's rest day one at the Tour so after lunch, G and Laurens sat down to reflect on a crazy opening week. There's a lot of talk about yesterday's gravel stage, a health update from De Pluski, analysis of the top three on GC and plenty more. The guys also answered plenty of your questions.

WE'VE BOOKED ANOTHER LIVE SHOW! On November 8th, Watts Occurring is hitting the Lowry Theatre in Salford, Greater Manchester. Get your tickets here. Well, we think it's fair to say today's gravel stage lived up to the hype - even if it didn't quite shake up the GC. Tom Pidcock battled it out for a famous win and Pog tried all he could to shift his rivals. Luke and Tom recapped the action, while reflecting on an incredible first week in France. Do you remember Bardet winning yellow? It feels like a month ago already. G's back tomorrow with the traditional rest day catch up. See you then. Want to try Ketones as part of your lifestyle?

WE'VE BOOKED ANOTHER LIVE SHOW! On November 8th, Watts Occurring is hitting the Lowry Theatre in Salford, Greater Manchester. Get your tickets here. There's absolutely no place to hide in a time trial at the Tour de France - and today was a heck of a lot tighter than they have traditionally been in recent years. It may not have shaken the GC up, but it certainly means we've got a proper race on our hands. G wanted to give it his all but when he hit the climb, he decided to save his legs a little. That was just the start of his afternoon though, as he told Tom when he eventually made the massage table... Our Chapeau of the Day sponsored by Continental Tyres was hotly contested tonight too - but a certain little b*stard may have just come out on top.

G looked good on day one at the Tour and came home in what was left of the peloton, Romain Bardet took a famous victory and this year's first yellow jersey, while Mark Cavendish battled round in the Italian heat to hang on in there.

Yes, you're right: it's been far too long. We've missed De Pluski on the pod but, stuck up in Isola training for the Tour with G, we took the opportunity to catch up with everyone's favourite Belgian. There's been a dramatic wedding proposal in Australia, some very solid performances on the bike and, of course, that incredible showing at the Dauphine. Now he's ready for the Tour - his first in the colours of INEOS. And we're sure if you ask him nicely enough, he'll make a return to the pods throughout July. Long live the Carrot of Ninove. Speaking of the Tour, we've teamed up with Continental Tyres - and they're offering three people the chance to watch the final stage in VIP style.

G's up in Isola, Luke's had a sun cream faux pas, but both the boys have been keeping a beady eye on a cracking Dauphine. Ambassador De Pluski was right in the mix, Roglic pulled on the yellow jersey, and it's fair to say Tour de France fever is building.

Watts Occurring Pogi? You didn't really think after Luke spent the month of May rating his pink outfits and G spent it chasing him round Italy, that we couldn't get Pog on the pod did you? The Giro d'Italia winner and favourite for this year's Tour de France, Tadej Pogacar joined G in Monaco while Luke dialled in for a fun chat with the Slovenian star. What was his favourite stage in the Giro? How is he going to race the Tour? What's the first thing he ate after winning in Rome?

Another Grand Tour podium for G. What a man. Here at Watts Occurring we're incredibly proud of him - and we're sure you all are too.

The rain has started pouring in Italy but G remains right in the hunt for a podium spot in Rome. There's plenty to catch up on: the shorted stage 16, a mountain battle on stage 17, and today's sprint day. With Luke and Tom busy, G hopped on the massage table, plugged in his mic, and updated Producer George on the comings and goings in Italy. There's two big mountains days left - and G has two ascents of Monte Grappa to look forward to on his 38th birthday. Can you think of a better way to spend it?

I love this podcast. I don't have the $ability to watch the TDF in Canada. Your pod fills in the blanks where the YouTube highlight reels end. It's a true Insiders podcast. Do you guys watch JB2?

Sounds like the new guy knows what he's on about, better than the other two numpties you have to work with. Good luck with the rest of the race. 🤓

Best podcast for explaining to normal people how cycle racing feels to top pros, and how tactics work (or don't). Geraint is very down to earth.

omg that road in Harlech , we used to go there camping in Llanbedr every year when I was really young for about 10 years or so back in the 1970's ...my dad loved driving up there and I can say I hated it every time and that was in a car. Would hate to cycle it .
