Episode 1852: Sam Bennett’s Stage, Farrell’s Head Shot, Ulster’s Munster Lesson, Ken’s Friend
Sam Bennett is the sixth Irishman ever to win a stage at the Tour De France, but he gave by far the best-ever post-race interview. Eoin also salutes Bennett’s warmth, and the Eurosport commentators’ ability to talk for hours about mostly nothing.
