In defence of Sagan, and questions over G's Ineos future

There was controversy on Stage 11 of the Tour de France as Peter Sagan was relegated for a barge on Wout van Aert in a thrilling sprint finish in Poitiers, won by Caleb Ewan.


Despite coming under fire from other riders in the peloton, and notably Van Aert, Brad explains why Sagan did nothing dangerous and how his actions have been misinterpreted.


Sagan's punishment means Sam Bennett is now the big favourite to claim the green jersey but Brad says Sagan can't be discounted and, like Michael Jordan, he may just be fuelled by this perceived injustice.


In a fascinating segment, Brad also talks to Sean Kelly about Bennett's Tour so far, and when the King won his first Tour stage in Poitiers, 42 years ago...


And finally, Brad and Graham discuss Gregor Muhlberger having to abandon while ill, and what questions Tirreno-Adriatico is throwing up about the future of Geraint Thomas.
