In this episode Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie are again joined by François Thomazeau to review stage 18 of the Giro d'Italia, which tackled the legendary Stelvio before the finish at Laghi di Cancano.
We discuss the World Jacket Putting-On Championships and Team Sunweb's tactics and ask why the mood in the camp might not be ecstatic tonight considering they took the stage victory and the pink jersey. We reflect on João Almeida's incredible run as race leader, which came to an end on the Stelvio, and wonder whether Tao Geogheghan Hart can win this Giro over the weekend.
And there's an unmissable entry in James Knox's Giro diary.
Then we discuss the third stage of the Vuelta a España, which was won by Ireland's Dan Martin.
