Eoin Connolly and SportsPro news editor Tom Bassam are joined by Alex Duff, author of ‘Le Fric: Family, Power and Money – The Business of the Tour de France‘.

They discuss how the model of cycling’s biggest event has been shaped by the decades-long ownership of the Amaury family, consider its role as an elite global challenge and national showpiece, and ask how the outsized prominence of the Tour continues to affect the wider business of the sport.

They also look to the future of the Tour, including the Zwift-backed women’s event, data partnerships and a new Netflix series.
