    Should the 2017 Tour De France have visited Mont Ventoux to honour Tom Simpson? Was this year’s route specifically designed to frustrate a fourth win for Froome?

     

    The only man who can answer these questions is Tour director Christian Prudhomme and he’s on the Rouleur Podcast. Ian Parkinson is also joined by Jeremy Whittle and Andy McGrath, who have both written new books about Mr Tom and the Giant of Provence. Plus the Rouleur Quiz.
