You may remember our Tour de France preview show. Yes? Well, Simon is still paying for his woeful prediction. Still at least he's not in a neck brace any more. Dan's stolen that.

In more serious news, we look back at a great Tour de France with confirmation of several great talents.

It was also the inaugural "La Course", won by Marianne Vos in a dramatic bunch sprint.

Finally, we touch on all our usual favourites, including Strava Club, Tech of the Week, Tweet of the Week, and Captions.
