Welcome to the first Tour Daily episode of the CyclingTips Podcast, which will run from today until the end of the 2019 Tour de France. Caley Fretz is joined by Rupert Guinness at the grand depart in Brussels, Belgium. Guinness, a veteran of 31 Tours, tells stories of pre-Tour prep gone wrong, from Stephen Roche's ill-timed bathroom break to Pedro Delgado's missed prologue.
Next, Abby Mickey calls in for a wrapup of the first stage of the Giro Rosa, and a look ahead at the stages to come. We also hear from newly crowned US champion Ruth Winder.
