    Direct from Mont Ventoux, we bring you Episode 4! The crew gate-crashes the Rough Rider documentary filming, we go native with the fans on the mountainside, and Dave says "scorchio" a bunch while talking to his thumb. Justin has the top stories from the Tour and the Zabel re-confession doping scandal, as well as Pad Thai McQuaid's latest ploy in the bid for UCI supremacy. As always, we've got the Top 5 Moments in Cycling, and in an up close interview Dave battles the cacophony of the local cicadas to talk bike tours with Jennifer Sage of Viva Travels about helping her clients traverse some of the major climbs of the Tour and enjoy the local wines. Enjoy, and thanks for watching!

      • Tour de France 2014: Stage 1 on a Boris bike

        We thought it might just be possible to haul a 50lb Boris bike a daunting 190km around stage 1 of the 2014 Tour de France in Yorkshire, over hill and dale, and get it back to London in 24 hours - with every donation to www.justgiving.com/BORISvLeTour in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support adding fire to our bellies. It turns out that endless 17% gradients combined with an actual 204km of riding (not the advertised 190km) while on a 50lb bike with three gears and a basket is rather tough - but not impossible. Could we make it back to London in time though? Thanks for checking out the film. Like it? Every text of "HARD65 £3" to 70070 donates £3 to Macmillan Cancer Support and massively makes this worthwhile. To donate more or less just change the number. Or visit www.justgiving.com/BORISvLeTour Thank you from the team - Andy Sloan, Dave Barker, Lewis Baguley, Pog Pattison and Dave Parkes. And a special THANK YOU to Brian Becker for his time and patience editing the film from our amateur footage, to Alan Walker for being incredibly generous letting five guys he'd never met abscond with his van and to Mark Ansell and Louise Martin from BBC Radio.

          Well here I am on the Thalys bound for Paris and I’m like a dog with two dicks. In the next couple of days I’m am about to witness the first ever triumph by an English man /British person/someone with daft sidies to win the Tour De France. To say I’m ecstatic would be an understatement. With the warm glow hovering around my body that only a small bottle of wine off the train trolly dolly can produce, I’m sat back in my seat listening to a bit of the Kinks and I’m in a Wiggish kind of mood. Well the type of mood Wiggo will be in after he finishes helping Cav win the gold medal at the Olympics and is then free to go on a bender or two and celebrate his winning of the Maillot Jaune in proper fashion. It’s Friday morning and I have a weekend of debauchery in front me. The plan of action is to check into the hotel once I disembark this rattler and go on the ale and do a bit of shopping around the Champs Elysee, maybe dipping into a few bars along the way to see how the Tour is getting on. Its safe to say that barring any accidents or misfortune Brad will be pedalling down Frances main thoroughfare donned in yellow, so todays flatfish stage is no case for concern and I think it will be a day for a small break to stay away or a come together at the end for the sprinters to fight it out. So a basic take it easy and not too much pressure for the Sky boys today then, a bit like my day. Tomorrow will be a different story for me though as It entails an early start on a rattler so I can venture outside the Paris boundaries and head for a small suburban town and the finish of the penultimate TT stage. After spending all day on my feet collecting as much footage as I can on my newly bought handy cam, I will hot foot it back to the city centre for a night of good food and good wine. Sunday will be another pressured day for me as I will be waking with a hangover for sure and will have to keep my wits about me as I go on the hunt for a good speck to view the final stage of the tour. With no proper press accreditation at hand I’m going to have to blag it with my IPC card and see how far that gets me. Speaking from past experiences it will be a little difficult to pierce the accreditation bubble and get close enough to get some good footage of Brad on the podium, but one can only try. Then after celebrating like mad on the Sunday night an early dart will be needed on the Monday morning so I can catch the bright an early and get back to work on time. It’s hard graft being a cycling fan. Mission one accomplished reached the hotel and now I ready for my intake of food & wine. au revoir cunts.

              So basically, all you need to know about the 2013 Tour de France so far is that Matt White is a Bond Supervillain. In all seriousness, though—Orica-GreenEdge has had a great Tour, RadioShack has salvaged it season, while the standard first week titans have almost universally struck out. Some would-be GC threats seem more interested in KOMs, though it could just be lack of GC opportunity has left them seeking other means to keep busy.

                Kind of a bummer that he best sprints of this year's Tour de France and first big TdF GC stages had to get wedged in together, but no matter. Strict rules are enforced to keep the commentary on-topic, respect is given to the flat events, and honestly, Stage 9 probably needed its own episode. But I'm only one, sleep-deprived, overworked man.

                  Ok, sure—the time trial and the mountain stage were both a little predictable and maybe not what people wanted to see. But c'mon, crash drama, Cav drama, crosswinds drama; it was a fun week! Plus if you remove a certain prohibitive favorite from the GC, it's actually a really close race. Regardless of how unstoppable you seem, all it takes is one bad day—just ask Floyd Landis.

                      Climbing! Time trials! Climbing time trials! But seriously, everyone's favorite tune-up race actually packed in quite a few interesting sprints. Weather shortened the queen stage, which gave us an uphill finish, but likely made the final outcome more of an inevitability. Ah well—can't win 'em all.
