The biggest upset in sporting history? Pogacar's stunning Tour win changes everything

Where do we start after one of the most remarkable days in Tour de France history?


Well, how about with Tadej Pogacar, the utterly brilliant 21-year-old who will be crowned Tour de France winner in Paris on Sunday after blowing Primoz Roglic out of the water on Saturday's Stage 20 time trial up La Planche des Belles Filles.


Was this the biggest upset in sport? Brad and Graham discuss what could be a true changing of the guard moment for cycling and reflect on Roglic's remarkable collapse as he fell apart in the penultimate stage.


How did Jumbo-Visma end up without the yellow jersey despite barely putting a foot wrong? Maybe because Pogacar is a talent who could be ushering in a very special 10 or 15 years, and maybe there was an element of complacency at play...


There's also a mention for Richie Porte after he clinched a place on the podium in the Tour de France which he missed the birth of his second child to race in.


And finally, Orla Chennaoui catches up with Mark Cavendish and revisits that incredible day in 2012 when Brad wore yellow into Paris and set up Cav to win the final sprint.
