As we all know the Russian army has invaded its smaller neighbour Ukraine, but this is not a new situation. PEZ spoke to Astana's Andriy Grivko back in 2014 and he had a lot to tell us about the conflict in his home land of Ukraine. We caught up with him at the Astana training camp in Spain.
Another exciting Tour stage with a nail-biting climax on the Col de la Loze. Miguel Ángel López put in the final attack on the final leg breaking ramps, the yellow jersey, Primoz Roglič tried to go with him and took lengths from second placed Tadej Pogačar. That's how they finished and Lopez jumped to third overall.
The sixth stage of the Tour de France saw Alexey Lutsenko solo to the finish on Mont Aigoual. The Kazakh champion was part of the early break and he turned out to be the strongest rider on the stiff final climb of the Col de la Lusette. The favourites for the GC held back, except Julian Alaphilippe who made a last metre attack. Adam Yates remains overall leader.
