The 2020 Tour de France has reached the first rest day after an enthralling opening week in Nice, the Alps and Pyrenees. Your rest day episode of the BikeRadar Podcast goes behind-the-scenes with Diego Costa, lead mechanic for the Ineos-Grenadiers team at this year’s race.
Ahead of the Tour, we caught up with Costa to discuss the life of the WorldTour mechanic on cycling’s biggest race, why the team hasn’t switched to disc brakes yet, sponsorship commitments, and at what point they start building a yellow bike in advance of a potential overall race win.
You can take a closer look at the team’s Pinarello Dogma F12 here, otherwise check out our complete guide to 2020 Tour de France bikes.
