There are five hours of the new Netflix show Tour de France: Unchained, which covers the 2022 Tour de France, which means there's lots of talking about cycling. Fortunately for us, the audience, there are some good characters talking about cycling. There's Groupama-FDJ team boss Marc Madiot, who seems to produce a pithy phrase every time he opens his mouth, EF Education-EasyPost's boss Jonathan Vaughters, who also can't stop talking, and Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) among others.

Take a look at our review of Unchained if you want to see what we think of it, and our episode-by-episode guide to take an in-depth look at what actually happens over the eight episodes of the documentary.

Adam is Cycling Weekly’s news editor – his greatest love is road racing but as long as he is cycling on tarmac, he's happy. Before joining Cycling Weekly he spent two years writing for Procycling, where he interviewed riders and wrote about racing. He's usually out and about on the roads of Bristol and its surrounds. Before cycling took over his professional life, he covered ecclesiastical matters at the world’s largest Anglican newspaper and politics at Business Insider. Don't ask how that is related to cycling.
