With the Giro d'Italia now a fading pink memory, we turn to the Dauphiné Libéré and other matters in Episode 15 of the Cyclingnews podcast.
This week, Cyclingnews' Daniel Benson and BikeRadar's Jeff Jones only pull two or three punches as they discuss the first four stages of the Dauphiné, before moving into Columbia-Highroad's potential Tour de France team, then tackling Bernhard Kohl and his recent statements about doping and the UCI's bloody passport.
After a short break for tea, the pair turn to the subject of doping (again), namely the Play the Game conference in Coventry. This should not be confused with Copenhagen, which apparently is now in Iceland. They finish with a look at Christian Vande Velde's return to racing after his nasty crash in the Giro.
